Image result for anything is possible 5k

I’m not a runner, but even I think this race is cool.

The Anything Is Possible 5K takes place at 1:50 AM on the night daylight savings time ends. And the reason anyone would run at this ungodly hour is this: the clock resets mid-race. So you finish before you begin.

…Then you drink beer and eat pancakes.

When I worked with 5-hour Energy, we sponsored the AIP and it was my favorite race of the year. I even ran it twice. And the atmosphere is unlike any other 5K you’ll find. Especially the part where tyou run through a big, blinking “time warp.”

Finishing with a negative time is pretty sweet. Plus, you get pajama pants rather than another ol’ t-shirt to put in your drawer.

It started here in Atlanta but I believe they’ve branched out to other markets. Check out the site if you want to run.

If you recall, I struggled with the last event list I did for a Food Truck Festival. So if I’m going to try again, I may as well make it a fun one.

Overall: Decent. Not great but better than the Food Truck festival. I think a few of these could work well on Facebook ads.

Lessons: I’m still not great at capturing mood and excitement in the lines. I’ll have to keep practicing.

  • My favorite lines were the first I wrote—but several of the better ones (before I scrambled the list so I can judge it easier) came at the end. It pays to power through.
  • Spellcheck keeps flagging me for “nutjobs” – but it’s just much more fun to write it that way

Time: 1 session, 50 minutes
