Creatures of Habit

Nuns make perfect athletes. No, really. When you spend your day living sin-free, there’s little room slothful moments in front of the TV, painfully lusting over that latest Ryan Gosling interview. They take the high road. Plus, the no sex thing probably drives a bit of healthy aggression when training. So don’t underestimate the sisters of Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration and Our Lady of Solitude Monastery. These God-loving ladies will certainly be able to hold their own during Saturday's Nun Run at Tempe’s Kiwanis Park, 6111 South All American Way.
