GIVEAWAY: 2015 Parma Run/Walk for Pierogies

Memorial Day is past , so we look to find excitement in the next summer holiday of the Fourth of July. Parma residents used to look forward to the annual fireworks at Tri-C West, but now we look to a new tradition:

The Fifth Annual Run/Walk for Pierogies will take place at Cuyahoga Community College’s Western Campus on Sunday, July 5, 2015. Features this year again include:

  • The 5k run is  chip timed and part of the Hermes Road Race Series.
  • Register 3 or more from the same address for $50 (limit 3 t-shirts/goodie bags).
  • Extra shirts may be purchased for $10. (Only available via the mail-in option.)

I also love how this year’s race is benefitting some many local charities:

  • The Cuyahoga County Community College Scholarship Fund
  • Parma Girl Scouts
  • All Faiths Pantry
  • Parma Animal Shelter
  • American Cancer Society Parma Area Relay for Life

Day of race registration and packet pick up starts at 7:00AM. The 5K starts at 8:30 and the one mile option starts at 8:35AM. Afterwards you get to eat Parma’s finest pierogies from the race’s pierogi sponsor, Perla’s Homemade Delights — plus many other food options from many other kind local donors. Can’t beat the array of post workout fuel!

Pierogi Run 2014 Start

Online in-advance race registration is $20 for adults and $10 for children (prices increase on race day). You have until Friday, July 3 at 9AM to register online for the race… or you can enter to win a race entry to the July 5th race here on the blog! Enter at the Rafflecopter:

The fine print: You have until THIS SUNDAY, June 14th at 11:59PM to enter this giveaway via the Rafflecopter widget. A winner will be announced the next morning, probably on the Poise in Parma Facebook page. As this is a local event taking place in the Greater Cleveland area, I highly encourage entries by those that can attend the event on Sunday 7/5/15 — or pass along their prize to a friend who can. 

Follow the Parma Run/Walk for Pierogies on Facebook and register for the race today online at the Hermes Road Racing site

Disclosure: Both images ℅ the race organizers. Being unable to attend this year’s race, I offered to run a giveaway for the 2015 Parma Run/Walk for Pierogies. The race organizers accepted, providing a race entry as a reader giveaway. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

my weekend out & about (with giraffes, artists, Mother Nature & fire fighters)

As an extrovert living in a city with plenty going on in every neighborhood within a 20-ish minute drive from my house, I knew Friday morning that it was going to be the perfect weekend to take advantage of all that Cleveland had to offer:

zippityzoo 1

Kicking off the weekend Friday night post-yoga class by arriving fashionably late to Cleveland Zoological Society‘s Zippity Zoo Doo at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Crazy to think that Twilight at the Zoo will be here before we know it!

beachland 1

Lunch at the Beachland Ballroom and Tavern on Saturday included “pealafel” bites — made with peas and edamame. Fun to run into an old friend and to learn about some neat things that Beachland has in the works. Can’t wait to return!

praxis 1

Grand Opening of Praxis Fiber Workshop in Collinwood  — so so proud of my fellow yoga teacher training sister & Praxis Executive Director Jessica Pinsky on creating her dream via an amazing space, with a rockin’ team and beautiful artwork. 

praxis 2

Tie dying t-shirts (for the first time in decades) at the grand opening. Wishing mine was the one with the cool circles — my finish product is in the bottom right. I like it!

Two separate outdoor adventures: hiking with my guys Saturday afternoon in the Cleveland Metroparks’ Brecksville Reservation, then a Sunday morning towpath bike ride just down the road in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Holding down the Evolution Yoga vendor table at the Orange Village Fire Department Open House & Health and Wellness Fair on Sunday. Snuck away to get a healthy screening: great blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels. The University Hospitals staff member said to me, “whatever you’re doing, keep doing it!”

Cavs Witness

Pictured: My husband, ready to take care of business before last night’s Cavs game. After that win, I’m pretty sure he’s never going to take off that Witness shirt. (Not pictured: me crashing on our family room floor after another great weekend in Northeast Ohio.)

TOMORROW: Join me for #cleYPweek “Night Time Grind” Yoga at Evolution Yoga

Have you heard of Engage! Cleveland? Founded in 2012, this non-profit is “a resource for Cleveland’s young professionals to connect them to the organizations, nonprofits, events, businesses and individuals to help them become better integrated to the city.” (from their website) Sounds great, right?

It only gets better as EC is hosting its 2nd annual Cleveland Young Professionals Week (AKA #CleYPWeek) from June 1-6… hey, that’s this week!


There are plenty of events that are taking place this week, including Rise and Grind workouts, Lunch and Learns, Network After Work and Night Grind Workouts… including yoga with yours truly.

Tomorrow night (Wednesday 6/3), join me at Evolution Yoga (at 4640 Richmond Rd., Warrensville Heights, OH 44128 — Google Map here) for a vinyasa “Sweet Heat Flow” yoga class. Class starts at 7:30pm, is geared to all levels, and cost is only $5 — it includes a NOOMA drink for the ride home.

Register in advance to save your spot at the Engage! Cleveland website.

Support a good cause and follow Engage! Cleveland’s website, as well as on Facebook, on Twitter and on Instagram at @engagecleveland.  And come on out for some yoga tomorrow night at Evo!
