Dustin at Tallahassee Marathon
As part of National Cancer Control Month, we want to remember those we have lost, support those fighting this disease, and recommit to progressing toward effective cancer control. Our April 20 and 21, 2013 Run For Rhodes #Anywhere5K is to honor one such person, Dustin Rhodes.
Dustin is a 28-year-old husband, father, son, brother, friend, and runner whose life was changed in one 48-hour period from training for a 50-mile ultra race to a race to figure out how to deal with the severely aggressive brain tumor, glioblastoma multiforme, that made him collapse at work. Until that day, he was in peak health.
Dustin is only one of 200 people in the world in their 20s to be diagnosed with this type of cancer. An intensively sensitive and delicate surgery in January removed 90% of the tumors, one of which still lies perilously close to his brain’s “motor strip.” He faces radiation treatment, chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and a long fight to beat the odds.
To celebrate a great year of running and to get energized for 2013, #Anywhere5K is hosting a Resolve to Run #Anywhere5K on Dec. 29-30.
Whether you want to get a head start on your 2013 fitness resolutions or cap off completion of 2012′s resolutions with a bang, the race will help make sure your year starts — and ends — on the right foot.
And just to make sure you get your 2013 running year off to a great start we’re giving away some sweet prizes like Road ID gift cards, Ultimate Direction fuel belts, a BODYGLIDE® prize pack, and a Garmin Forerunner 10!
This past weekend you rocked the stache you’ve been grooming all month and ran the #Anywhere5K Stache Dash. Whether you let your stache grow naturally, taped one on, or did your best Sharpie stache-work, you did a great job and helped the Movember movement raise funds and awareness for men’s health and prostate cancer. Kudos to you!
Seriously, congrats to all of you who rocked your dirt squirrel or did your best to emulate Magnum P.I. and ran your 5K course!
Here’s how the race turned out…
This past weekend you put on your best, most ghoulish performance. The race pulled runners from graves around the world, and challenged them to run as only the dead can run.
Congrats to all of you and congrats to those who braved your entire 5K course dressed as zombies, superheroes, and other costumed characters!
Here’s how the race turned out…
“The handlebar” “The fu manchu” “The chevron” “The pencil” “The walrus” Whatever your age, occupation or hey, even gender, odds are there’s a style of moustache suited just for you.
True, the moustache hasn’t been in vogue since “Magnum P.I.” went off the air (sorry, hipsters), but we’re encouraging you to rock the dirt squirrel and support a good cause with our #Anywhere5K Stache Dash on November 24 & 25, 2012.
Here’s the skinny. Thanks to the Movember movement, men (and women) around the world are growing and grooming Mo’s to raise funds and awareness for men’s health and prostate cancer.
And, because we’re always looking for a good excuse to rock the Mo (and who isn’t?), we’re encouraging runners to join the movement and become Mo Bros and Mo Sistas so they can participate in the #Anywhere5K Stache Dash.
