Harrisburg fitness – Gearing Up for the Half Marathon

hershey-parkIn a couple of days from now, Harrisburg will be hosting its annual half marathon for Children’s Miracle Network and Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. Starting at Hersheypark Stadium and going through Hersheytown and Chocolate Town, this event will certainly be one way for runners to burn calories and get in shape even if they happen to stop for a snack along the way!

In recognition of their efforts all races and volunteers will be given complimentary passes to Hersheypark’s attractions. But ultimately, apart from increasing Harrisburg fitness on a personal and communal level, the real reward is the knowledge of helping out these kids through the money raised.

Rick Ross to Grace Harrisburg

Anyone who is into the rap scene could be pretty familiar with Rick Ross and his Miami rap music.  He released his no. 1 debut album just five years ago, and since then has gone on to record three more hit albums.  He is currently working on his fifth.

Widely-known as the “Teflon Don,” Ross has another name too.  Born as William Leonard Roberts II in 1976, this American rapper founded Maybach Music Group (a record label).  So far, two of his four albums have been released through that: Deeper Than Rap and Teflon Dan.

Ross will be coming to Harrisburg this month to perform.  For those interested in catching one of his performances, sign up for either 26 July at Hersheypark Stadium or the following night at the Giant Center.
