The Autodesk University annual AU5K is an official AU event this year and called Shaan’s Run being held next Tuesday the 14th of November at 6am, but show up by at least 5:45 for a group photo. This fun morning run has been going on unofficially for a few years and is not a run but an opportunity for people of all levels walk to run and to get some fresh air outside the resort, see the sunrise, meet awesome people, and get some exercise. Last year we had over 50 participants, but this year we are expecting hundreds and have a special surprise gift.

There will be two courses one 2.5k and one 5k. The event will have AU staff managing the route including security and paramedics on stand by. There will also be breakfast bites out there so you will not miss out grabbing something to eat. You can dress up in something fun including fun socks and be aware the temp is about 50 degrees which isn't too bad if you are moving but if you are watching the runners or stop you may feel chilly.

You may have noticed it is a popular AU event and listed as “Full”, but if you want to join us running, walking or just rooting on the people, please show up at the Venetian fountain.

This year I may have to pass due to a torn meniscus although I have been getting shots in my knee weekly and doing physical therapy in hopes it will be well enough to run although my doctor is not excited about this. If I am unable to run I will definitely be there as a cheer leader and photographer and walk much of the course.

I hope to see everyone out at the fountain Tuesday morning. Spread the word!
