No matter what is going on in our lives or around the world there are ways to turn whatever negatives are affecting us into positives. Whether you do that through taking time to learn something new, lacing on your running shoes for a good cause, or enjoying some brews to help raise brewbie health awareness, make this weekend into something truly positive as you get out and about in San Diego.

Mermaids Have Legs This Weekend
Mermaids don’t need to be in the ocean to make a splash, and this Saturday, they will be making an appearance in Mission Bay!

Don’t Be a Kook, Get to Cardiff!
We are four days away from the start of the annual Cardiff Kook 5K, 10K , and Kids-K Run this Sunday and this is one run you will not want to miss. Traverse a beautiful coastal route past surf breaks and beaches to finish under the Encinitas sign on Highway 101.

Not finishing in the top 3 runner positions? No worries, as the costume contest also brings some cash prizes to the table.
