The weather is starting to be enjoyable again and Steve Bobenhouse with Fitness Sports says this weekend is perfect to get outside and moving again.  And once you're warmed up, you can sign up for some of the upcoming races.

The Leprechaun Chase in Des Moines will be held on March 15 and part of the proceeds go to the ARL.  Bobenhouse said this one is a fun one because the ladies start the race first and then the guys chase after them.

Then on March 16, the Fight for Air Climb kicks off with some stair climbing.  The event, where you climb stairs in either one or all three buildings is always popular with firefighters.  But with 63 flights of stairs from the buildings, it's a harder climb than it seems.
