Just signed up for the Bull Moon 5K this Saturday evening in Durham, NC. This is the town's biggest block party. All kinds of runners will participate, from newbies to experienced athletes. If you want to know what the running community is like, sign up for a race. You're far less likely to be judged for being unfit at a race than just about anywhere else. The running community gladly welcomes anybody who is trying to improve their health.
Come this Saturday and help support Habitat for Humanity of Durham. You can also do a 9.6-mile bike ride if you prefer.
