Big, Phat Deal

Do you ever feel like we're ashamed to believe that being fat is the worst possible thing that could ever happen to any human? We treat it like cancer – as if it’s something unpreventable that will suddenly strike us down. But that’s not true. Just do a little walking and the fat will stay away.

The folks at the Phoenix 10K get this concept, and they’ve got something for every fitness level. If the 10K race is a little too much for your chunky buns, they've got a 5K run, a 5K walk that benefits domestic violence prevention, and a 5K stroller stroll. Yep, that's right. They have a race for babies. We say if a baby can do it, you can, too.
