BURRR, it was cold outside early Saturday morning… but I bundled up my boys & headed out to support the I Am #LikeJesse Pop-Up 5K run hosted by Black Men Run and Time Bandit Racing. The event was aimed to celebrate the release of the upcoming Focus Features film, “RACE,” the incredible true story of Olympic icon, Jesse Owens, which opens in theaters on February 19.
It was really nice to visit the historic Grant Park again and see all the runners gear up for the race. The event was free and open to all runners/walkers and as a bonus… had the option to be chip timed for other races! All finishers also took home an exclusive “Race” t-shirt for completing the race.
I thought it would be good for the boys to see our community come together for a great cause! Special thanks to Go Liquid Soul for the heads up! 🙂
