August Sponsor: Kaiser Permanente Thrive Half Marathon and 5K

By Mario Fraioli

Many thanks to the Kaiser Permanente Thrive Half Marathon and 5K in my former hometown of San Diego for sponsoring the newsletter this month. Taking place on October 29, 2017, this new event benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and encourages runners to get fit and have fun while helping support an amazing local charity. The race—put on by my friends at Easy Day Sports—features a FAST point-to-point course that starts at the brand-new Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center and finishes at Vacation Isle in the heart of Mission Bay. Post-race perks include awards, a healthy food festival, yoga and more. Use the code “SHAKEOUT17” when you register and save 5 bucks off your entry fee.
