Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Monday, August 12 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
First Annual Enforcer 5K
As I'm sure you all are familiar with Seahawks Legend Kam Chancellor, then I'm also sure you've heard of his nickname—The Enforcer. On the field, the Enforcer is known to stop the run, break up the pass, or hit the hardest. Off the field, his nickname took a new shape in downtown Redmond this past Saturday.
Chancellor hosted the inaugural Enforcer 5K at Redmond Town Center on Saturday. The 3.1-mile course started and finished at Center Court in the outdoor shopping mall, and also featured a few other Seahawks Legends cheering participants on as motivation. Both Seahawks Legend Cliff Avril and Pro Football Hall of Famer Walter Jones were present, getting everyone pumped up and ready to run.
In a note written by the Enforcer himself, the event page reads, "For eight years the fans here in Seattle helped keep me motivated by cheering for me with everything you had. Now, it's your turn! Join me, Kam Chancellor, on Saturday, August 10, for the First Annual Enforcer 5K at Redmond Town Center. Whether you are running, jogging or walking all levels are welcome. We will do everything we can to make sure you stay motivated throughout the run." The Super Bowl XLVIII champion even signed the note at the bottom, "Sincerely, Kam Chancellor." Now if that doesn't motivate you to come out and give it your all, I don't know what would!
Scrolling through social media on Saturday or Sunday, it was hard to miss all of the posts from participants at the event. All the active 12s seemed very excited to be supporting Kam, and for Kam to be supporting them.
