My fellow editors, John Gennaro and John Crean, and I will be "running" in the 5K event that starts at Qualcomm Stadium and ends at the 50 yard line on July 21 (the day after my birthday). We encourage you to join us and the organizers of this event have seen fit to provide our readers with a $5 off code (BOLTSFROMTHEBLUE13) when you register online. That registration closes on July 16, so if you want to take advantage you should sign up soon.
I'm told the Johns haven't run since February, and my cardio sucks despite regular exercise, so if nothing else you might want to come see if any of us die.
The event benefits the Trish & Ryan Mathews Door of Hope Chest charity and Mathews will be at the finish line signing autographs for kids. The participation perks are pretty cool and detailed below along with the other race information.
