Beach season is right around the corner and that means it is time to tighten up a tad. Lucky for us, we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world and don’t have to do our crunches cooped up in the corner of some sweaty gym. Here are a couple of upcoming events that will get you outside, in shape, and enjoying the scenerey:   

GOTR 5K on June 8: Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization aimed at empowering young women to be “joyful, healthy, and confident.” The 5K course is out and back on the beautiful (and flat) Truckee River Legacy Trail. To register, visit the Girls on the Run website: http://www.girlsontherunsierras.org/5k

Relay for Life on June 13: Benefitting the American Cancer Society, this event was created to celebrate the lives of cancer survivors, to support those currently fighting the disease, and to remember those lost. Ceremonies start at 9am at Truckee High School and end at 9am the next day. To register or get more information click here: http://relay.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY13National?pg=infor...
