For all you brides out there who love to run (or walk) here's an opportunity you may love to participate in. The Reading Bridal District is hosting the Runaway Bride 5K Race on May 16. Whether or not you are a runner or a walker, it could be a fun challenge to accomplish (with your groom and bridesmaids!) as you are getting in shape for your big day. There will be a free t-shirt and a delicious pancake breakfast by Vonderhaar's after the race. It should be lots of fun, and costumes are encouraged - there are even prizes for the best dressed bride, groom, bridesmaids and groomsmen! There will also be a Kids Fun Run - so you can bring your flower girl and ring bearer as well. You can download a registration form HERE, or stop by amo-ink to fill one out. Amy Owens of amo-ink is entered in a contest to see which RBD (Reading Bridal District) shop can recruit the most participants, so please indicate that Amy referred you on the form, or she can initial the form if you fill it out in her office. Happy running or walking!
