A great charity event is coming up valentines weekend: Cupid's Undie Run (www.cupidsundierun.com).
Starting at noon at Pour House (319 Penn. Ave SE), registrants enjoy drink specials until 1:45. At that point we pack up our clothes and file-out into the streets in our undies to jog a lap around the Capitol (~1.75mi). After the run, everyone returns to the bar for prizes from Under Armour, Coupe De Foudre, and Boomerang Bus and food provided by Muscle Milk, Smart Water, Georgetown Cupcake and more. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
The best part is it's all for a great cause - The Children's Tumor Foundation (www.ctf.org). They are researching treatments for neurological tumor diseases that effect 1:3000 children.
