Brag about your new-age running gear all you want, but it’ll never compare to the effectiveness -- or stylishness -- of some bitchin’ shoulder pads, leg warmers, or a totally bangin’ pair of acid wash jeans.
The ‘80s return during the Retro Run, a boss 10K run and 5K run/walk held at Kiwanis Park. If you can step away from your Pac-Man and Galaga games long enough, come ready to run and dressed in your bright neon best. The dude and dudette in the least bogus costumes will win beach cruisers, with additional prizes for best material girl and best band (Poison, Def Leppard, New Kids on the Block -- you know the deal). In other words, it’s going to be the jam.
