Are you wearing red today? It’s National Wear Red Day

February 3 marks National Wear Red Day, a holiday to raise awareness for cardiovascular disease in women. It’s also the start of American Heart Month. The holiday was created by the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute in 2003.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the U.S., according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC reports that 289,758 women were killed in 2013 from heart disease, making up one in four of all female deaths that year.

The CDC notes that the same number of women and men die on average each year. It is the leading cause of death for both African American and white women in the U.C. and 64 percent of all women who die from heart disease showed no previous symptoms.

According to the CDC, the conditions and choices that can put a person at risk for heart disease include diabetes, overweight and obesity, poor diet, physical inactivity and excessive alcohol use. Symptoms of heart disease include heart attack, arrhythmia, heart failure and stroke.

Loveland Sweetheart Classic 2017 – February 11th, 2017

The Sweetheard Classic is a 4-mile run which takes place on the saturday before Valentines Day each year.

The Loveland Sweetheart Classic is normally run on the the Saturday before Valentines Day – this year (2017), that falls on the 11th of February.

Join hundreds of others on February 11th, 2017 for a day full of fun, love, and fitness as well as raising money for the Thompson Valley School District high school Cross Country teams. Kids 12 and under can participate in a free 400m run around the track.

The Loveland Road Runners are excited to once again hold this year’s event around Lake Loveland. Loveland High School will be hosting the registration and awards in their cafeteria. You can find parking spots in the east parking lot of the high school. The race will begin promptly in the same parking lot at 9:00 a.m. Racers will need to arrive at the high school early to assure smooth parking as well as an on-time start. To ensure the safety of our runners, the parking lot will be closed 15 minutes prior to the race start.

Our Take: If you’re going to indulge in chocolate, candy or beer (or all three) – then getting out and raising some money for a good cause while burning off a few calories is an excellent way to buy some leeway for Valentine indulgences! Go on – run for Loveland!

Cost: Single Registration, $30, Couples Registration, $55.
