Traveling for various runs this year? Add this one to your list.

I have an avid runner whom I became pretty close with last year. He has inspired me to get out and get moving more often this year. He is also someone who will travel to take part in various runs, so I wouldn't be surprised if he is headed to Diana, Texas for the March Madness Mud Run.

This 5K will benefit a great cause.

Combat Veterans will be the beneficiary for this event. They are an organization dedicated to supporting and helping our combat veterans both financially and emotionally. The Mud Run will take place in Thomas Falls on March 25 and will feature several obstacles courses along the way. Texas Roadhouse will also be on site serving up delicious burgers.

If your goals this year include getting fit and helping others, this is a win-win for you. You can satisfy both goals in one day.
