The Cinciditarod is a competitive event in which teams must push their way through a nearly five-mile course over the streets of downtown, Over-the-Rhine, Newport and Covington while physically attached to decorated shopping carts. Cinciditarod teams (consisting of five people each) are faced with other obstacles, including five mandatory check points and a grocery list of items that each team is required to pick up along their way. All grocery items collected will be donated to the FreeStore FoodBank. Race starts at 12:30 p.m. on Fountain Square.
It's typically part of my evening routine to post up in my apartment and totally unplug from reality by delving into a world of drugs, sex, ninjas, vampires and man-eating demons. No, I'm not suggesting that eating psychedelic mushrooms is one of my nightly endeavors, but rather indulging in the imaginative world that authorguy Christopher Moore creates in his bizarre, hilarious and consistently original novels.
