For once, I'm passing along something not union related that may be of interest. An ex-Daily Newser's trying to assemble a team of runners to participate in the Baker to Vegas relay race and needs our help. Anyone who's interested, read the message below and give her a shout...

This comes from a former DN-er now at Entertainment Weekly. Do you know anyone on the staff that would want to do this? Pass it along if so.

I'm trying to get the word out that we're fielding another team for the annual Baker to Vegas relay and was hoping you could forward this message to the newsroom. I first started running this damn thing when I worked at the Daily News. Would you mind doing so? Do you have to get permission from Ron Kaye? Can you do it anyway? ;-)

Attention all runners! Every year the media is allowed to field a 20-member team to participate in the annual Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay, a 120-relay sponsored by the Los Angeles Police Revolver and Athletic Club that's a huge goodwill race for law enforcement (hundreds of teams from all over country participate). This year it is scheduled March 31-April 2. Race begins in Baker, Ca. at noon on a Saturday and ends in Las Vegas the next morning. If you've always wanted to see whether you can sprint faster than a cop - or you've always wanted to know what it's like to run five miles in the middle of the desert at 3 a.m. - THIS is the relay for you. Legs range from 4 to 7 miles. Media team's name is The Write Stuff. Come on, it's fun! If you are interested, please contact former Daily News writer Lynette Rice at Lynette_Rice@ew.com.
