Last year I ran my 1st ever road race! It was the Downeast Family YMCA Couch Potato 000.20K Road Race. This year I'm going to have to up my game and ramp up my training, because they have increased the distance to 000.30K!

Here's last year's cool shirt and race bib!

Now because April 1st this year is Easter, the 3rd Annual Couch Potato Road Race and 5K has been moved to Monday, April 2nd. Race registration is still just $10.00. Proceeds benefit the Downeast Family YMCA.

The race will be run 4 times on April 2nd -  8:30am, 10:00am, 12:00noon and 5:30pm. The 5K kicks off at 5:45pm.

For the 5K there will be Age group awards as well as  prizes for most foolish costumes
