Both the Coffee Bar @ Bailey’s and Bailey’s General Store have assembled teams for the F.I.S.H. 10K Race this Saturday, Oct. 16 at the Sanibel Community House.

Running for the Coffee Bar @ Bailey’s is Renée Cutaia and Quinton Foshee. They run together two times a week and have been training on their own as well.

“I’m excited for Saturday — the adrenaline is already pumping in my veins,” said Cutaia. “Neither of us have run a 10K before, but we’re ready for it”.

The two baristas will be showing up before the race to help set up the coffee, tea, lemonade and bagels, that the Coffee Bar has donated for all of the runners post-race.

Bailey’s General Store has also assembled a team, including experienced runner Mead Johnson, who has run everything from 5K’s to marathons.

Johnson and her team will be soaring past the finish line, and providing fresh fruit and baked goods from Bailey’s that they’ve donated for all participants to enjoy.

This race, which is to benefit F.I.S.H. of Sanibel, is being held in conjunction with the Fort Myers Track Club and will begin at 7.30 a.m. this Saturday, Oct. 16. Runners can still sign up on the Fort Myers Track Club website, located at www.ftmyerstrackclub.com.
