The Feet in the Street Celebration is back in Fort Dupont Park SE and will kick off with a 5K at 9am in Area 1. The National Park Service and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) are teaming up again to host the second annual Feet in the Street celebration in Fort Dupont Park on Saturday, August 28, 2010 from 9am-3pm.
I went to this event last year and it was really cool to see all the health and fitness options in Southeast. There are a variety of vendors, organizations and activities showcasing healthy living options in Southeast DC. Make sure to catch the garden tour!
The goal is to promote a car-free day in Southeast. I suggest a more direct way to encourage a car free Southeast is to advocate for a Penn Ave SE metro station, nevertheless Feet in the Street is a great initiative and chance to meet other health-conscious people living East of the River.
So for everyone participating in the 5K at 9am. Look for me, I will be in all purple and struggling to break my 32 minute record.
