The big race going on this weekend is the Nature’s Path Organic Whidbey Island Marathon and Half Marathon to benefit the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation and Return to Freedom American Wild Horse Sanctuary. The course takes place on the North end of the island and runs down country back roads and along the coastline. Ultra Marathon Man Dean Karazes will be the Master of Ceremony for the post event celebration. If you’re looking for something to do this Sunday and are in the mood to run 13.1 or 26.2 miles you can still sign up for the race at the Expo at Oak Harbor High School on Saturday. If you’re not in the mood for running, you can always volunteer (just sign up at the Expo), or just head on over and cheer on all the runners.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! I wish I could join you, but an injury sidelined my training for Whidbey Island, so I’ve had to defer my entry to next year. Oh well, I’ll be joining the Dalai Lama (and a ton of other people) at Qwest Field for the Seeds of Compassion event instead.
