Capitol Cupid Undie Run

What better way is there to celebrate the love weekend and to support a good cause than to run on snow-filled sidewalks around the Capitol in below freezing temps?  Oh, did I mention?  The run is done half-naked.

The event, officially titled Cupid’s Undie Run, was organized by Brendan Hanrahan who wanted to raise funds to benefit the Children’s Tumor Foundation.  It was a short 1.75m run starting from Pour House, looped around the Capitol, and ended back at the bar.  Overall, it was fun, COLD, and successful (I heard the event raised about 10k).
