In the Press

The Meerkats got a big shout out in the LA Times this past weekend!  Saturday’s edition of the Los Angeles Times featured an article written by Mikaela Conley, founder of The Daily Saint, highlighting a handful of upcoming races in the Los Angeles area.  Conley’s article, Five Kilometers of Fun Experiencesincluded this quote by Pat and Pants Off Racing’s efforts to do a little good along the way:

“It’s about taking the mind off the run itself, said Patrick Amato, co-founder of Pants Off Racing, a nonprofit organization for pancreatic cancer awareness and supportive services. Amato’s mother, Nancy “Pants” Amato, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2007. By 2009, Amato and his siblings had founded POR, which will sponsor its first race Oct. 12 in Calabasas.

“It’s contagious, and we have seen that over the years a good cause goes a long way when you have passion and find a common activity that people enjoy,” Amato said.

The race is open, so register today for the POR Almost 10k (and 5k) for Pancreatic Cancer.  Can’t wait to see everyone there!

Sautéing Solvang

Took a little trip to Solvang this weekend. It was time to celebrate the end of single life for Leah Brosephson and Mark Smith. It was a beautiful area and even had some time to turbodogg some miles in town.

This was the same course we ran this spring for the wine country half marathon – just in reverse. It was fun to run some hills and get ready for the POR almost 10k. Ryan Heinburg stopped and talked to a sheep and may have gotten dysentery from drinking hose water at a farm.

Regardless the weekend was a lot of fun and solvang brew co is worth the trip alone. Although the service is slow this bar still serves a purpose! Take on this Danish town responsibly.
