A Saturday in Sea Girt

Although August, as a general rule, bums me out a bit given its unfortunate position as the last month of summer, I cut it some slack because August is also the home of the Sea Girt 5K, which is one of my favorite summertime events.  

This morning in Sea Girt a few hundred runners and walkers shall gather for the 26th annual Sea Girt 5K.  The weather forecast suggests that it might be a bit on the sticky side - if not on the altogether wet side - when the starter's gun is fired at 8:30 am.  So what if it is?  It is Jersey in August.  Heat and humidity are rather reliable traveling companions this time of year 'round here.  

In my experience, irrespective of the weather, the Sea Girt 5K is always a well-attended, enthusiastically-supported, terrifically well-organized event.  If I have persuaded you to check it out and you have not yet signed up, fear not.  You can register this morning until 8:00 am.  The details can be found by clicking on the link in this piece's first paragraph.
