Ready to think about doing some running? We are hosting a THIN MINT SPRINT in Mobile on August 20. We have presented this event before, and it is always a lot of fun, whether you are a runner or not. We try to make it a healthy event, so you can run, walk, jog, or whatever you choose for the fun of it. It is a sanctioned event by the Port City Pacers, in case you are in search of points for a qualifying event.
This year, the THIN MINT SPRINT will be held within the University of South Alabama's campus. It is a family-friendly event, so bring the kids, bring the spouse, or bring the troop (or all three!). Because it is within the confines of the USA campus, it should be a safer event than the usual road race. We also plan to have a health fair in addition to the other activities of a run and fun run.
It should be some early fall fun right around the time of the beginning of school, so consider putting it on your calendar as a family outing. It's a great way to have some fun and support Girl Scouts at the same time.
