Fleeing Egypt, the Jewish people had a difficult time, from wading through a sea to attempting to cook bread on desert rocks (hint: it needs time to rise). A few thousand years later, we've come up with a new way to commemorate the importance of the Exodus -- and you don't even have to leave DC to do it. Simply sign up for The Exodus 5K Walk/Run in Rock Creek Park on March 25 for $12 (regularly $25). Two weeks before Passover, this event run by Sixth & I Historic Synagogue allows us to celebrate the holiday in a creative way, involving exercise, music, prizes, snacks, and an included T-shirt. Bring all your extra chametz or other non-perishable food items to the race, which will be donated to Miriam's Kitchen (no hard-boiled eggs, please). And since a 5K will take you less than 40 years to complete, you'll have plenty of time to make it back home to enjoy your brisket and four cups of wine.
