Boston.com is hosting it's first one-mile fun run through Boston Common Sept. 29 called Running with the Bridesmaids (read: jog, walk, hop, skip). And, yes, it's as it sounds: You wear your favorite (or least favorite!) bridesmaids dress ... and run.
This event is not only an excuse to be active, but your registration fee supports the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston. And we think you will probably get a good chuckle in the process. What's better than seeing women in bridesmaids dresses hoof it? Anyone?
While we're mentioning this here because it's a fun way to get up, out, and moving, we do recognize this isn't your typical fitness event, so take it for what it is, run safely (try not to trip on your dress!), and just go have some fun.
Your old (ugly) dress could win you and five friends a trip to Las Vegas, and the individual with the best "worst" accessories will win a sapphire pendant and earrings from the Jeweler's Exchange Building. Dependable Cleaners will also host a "bouquet toss" with gift cards for their services.
