@cal head 1:To Your Health @cal deck:You don’t have to be in shape to join this 5K -- but it helps. @cal body 1 no indent:Today’s fifth-annual Cornucopia Nature’s Bin Run/Walk at Lakewood Park is all about eating -- and staying -- healthy. And you’re never too young to start, says spokeswoman Mary Johnson. For the first time, kids are invited to participate in the 5K and one-mile jog, which takes you on a course that winds through some of Lakewood’s best views. “It’s such a nice time of year,” says Johnson. “Hopefully, it will also be a nice crisp morning.” @cal body 1:Johnson points out that while the event is a contest, participants can walk, stroll, or sprint at their own pace. Plaques go to the speediest runners, but everyone snags a commemorative T-shirt at the finish line. There’s also a buffet waiting there -- stuffed with organic goodies like cookies, bagels, and juice. “The benefit is seeing the results,” says Johnson. “We just want people to get up and moving.” It all starts at 8 a.m. at Lakewood Park, 14532 Lake Road in Lakewood. Fees range from $2 (for kids) to $20. Call 216-521-4600 or visit www.cornucopia-inc.org for more information. @cal byline 1:-- By Marge Perko
