'Diva Dash' Aug. 3

in Sandwich

The SHAPE Diva Dash women-only obstacle run debuts at the Sandwich Fairgrounds in Sandwich, Ill., on Saturday, Aug. 3.

This run is for girls and women 12 and older.

It combines a 5K run and a dozen obstacles designed to challenge aspects of overall fitness, including strength, balance and agility. Registration is open at www.DivaDash.com .

MMA controversy

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Josh Thomson asked on his Facebook page, "Should you be allowed to marry whoever you want? Before you answer that, should u be allowed to have more than 1 wife?," according to the Huffington Post. What followed was Thomson, among other things, comparing marriage equality to polygamy, pedophilia and incest. Bleacher Report noted that Thomson issued a statement saying, "I am not against gay rights or gay marriage in anyway [sic]. My comments were completely taken out of context by some members of the media and I have since removed them out of respect for anyone who may have been offended. It was not my intention to offend or hurt anyone."

Proud to Run June 29

The 2013 "Proud to Run" 5/10K race will take place Saturday, June 29, at Montrose Avenue and the lakefront at 8:04 a.m.

More than 2,000 LGBT runners and walkers are expected to take part in this annual event that is part of Chicago's Pride Month celebrating LGBT pride.

Slated highlights include a visit from the Chicago Pride Parade's grand marshal, Wade Davis; entertainment from the Chicago Spirit Brigade; race morning music from Tim Hite; and pre-/post-race stretching with FFC personal trainers.
