It's that time of year again. Not Halloween, not the long-awaited fall weather or even the opportunity to get schnockered at Oktoberfest. It's the annual Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday, a chance for veteran racers and novices alike to peel themselves off the couch, get some exercise and fight breast cancer. There's a 5K Family Fun Run and a 1K Run/Walk. Timed competitors can pay an extra $5 to have their times measured, but you don't have to be Forrest Gump to participate. Registration begins at 6:30 a.m. at NorthPark Center near Macy's. You can register in advance at komen-dallas.org for $30, pay $35 by mail or $40 on race day.
