There's actually a matchmaking 5K
Sometimes quitting your job and doubling down on that side project really works out.
That's what Camilla Swagar discovered when she left her job to start a matchmaking 5K, which is exactly as described: runners go on mini "run dates" with each other on a 5K course. You meet five new people, and there are speed-walking zones and conversation starters so you're not, like, panting while racing each other.
In my latest story for Shape, I talked to Camilla about meeting her current boyfriend at a Love Me Run, and what people can expect at the next one, which is Nov. 12 in Santa Monica. You can read it here! How One Woman Met the Love of Her Life On a 5K.
