The words "fun" and "run" should never be uttered in the same sentence. Unless that sentence is "You know what doesn't sound fun? Going for a run." But this is a race I could actually win.

A group in Texas has organized a race for underachievers -- and you won't have to spend months training for it.

The first annual Boerne 0.5K is being dubbed "The Running Event for the Rest of Us." Participants--and I use that term very loosely--entered the race for a $25 signup fee. There's also a "VIP" option for those that are EXTRA lazy -- a Volkswagen bus will transport them the length of the course for an extra $25.

Demand was surprisingly high. Race organizers posted that registration was full as of last week.

For those daring enough to complete the 546-yard course, there will be a free donut and coffee station at the midway point (gotta have those carbs for energy!) as well as free beer at the start AND finish lines.

Racers will also receive a t-shirt, participation trophy, and a "super pretentious" oval window sticker. The tongue-in-cheek event is raising funds for Blessings in a Backpack, which provides food for underprivileged children.
