It's a charity race with a back story like none other: bloodthirsty demons have been working in your community's offices, living in its homes, attending its schools. And now they're on the hunt and people are running for their lives. Citizens might be booking it across a field, seemingly far from the chaos, when shapes emerge on the horizon dressed head-to-toe in vampires' telltale black clothes. If you're a citizen, be prepared to run. If you're a vampire—lock in your target.
That's just part of what you might experience on the Vampire 5K, a twilight fun run where participants can register as "citizens" or "vampires" and take off from two separate starting lines. Both camps eventually converge in a chase that finds vamps trying to convert their mortal counterparts to the dark side. Citizens, dressed in white, sport two garlic flags; if the flags are taken before runners cross their finish line, they switch to a black tee and chase citizens. After the race, a moonlit party finds both camps sipping bloody marys during a dance party and award presentation. The race benefits the Mission to Hear Foundation, which provides hearing aids to underprivileged children, adults, and whatever they're calling the age group that comes in between these days.
Bikram Yoga is a series of 26 postures performed in a room heated to 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Through this sequence of moves, students stretch out muscles, strengthen their cores, and improve blood circulation. At Bikram Hot Yoga Miami, the staff seeks to share these benefits with anyone who is interested, whether a beginner or an advanced student. After getting acquainted, first-time students can rent a mat and towel, set up their spot inside the carpeted studio, and lie down in svasana before class starts. The vigorous class then inspires serious sweating, dispelling the toxins built up from eating too many lava lamps.
