Jeff Lichterman and team are top notch and definitely the grooviest pet groomers around. Welcome back to the Back in the Day K!
are you one of the groovy?
This year, we are pretty stoked about our new logo. It's pretty far out and it's rolling out this season in stages. You'll see both logos this year, but next year, when you return for the 2020 Back in the Day K, you'll see the GROOVIEST LOGO EVER. This logo reflects more of our 70s vibe and jives with our event way better.
couch to 15k. yea. it's possible.
Here's a very easy plan to get you on the course to the 15K in just 10 weeks.
Back in the Day K is more than a super groovalicious 70s themed run/walk event. It’s about connection – connecting families who need a smile with dogs who need a loving home. These animals become forever family and do so much more than what we see on the surface.
Meet Buddy. Buddy was a rescue in the care of All Dogs Matter, a rescue charity in London, England. Just a short distance away in Hertfordshire, an 18 year old young lady, Shayna, suffered a stroke. During Shayna’s long, arduous recovery to regain function down her right side, she became depressed. Her mother, Diane, decided she needed a dog to give her focus and something to be responsible for, a purpose to get well again. Enter Buddy.
“When we first got Buddy she had been neglected of love and attention and if you went to stroke her she would avoid touch and stare at her ball for you to throw. Over a long period of time and with a lot of patience she is now the dog… who interacts to please Shayna. They make a great pair, both helping each other.”
Di and Shayna are visiting Music City for their love of country music. They looked around for something fun to do and found the Back in the Day K. Di and Shayna connected with our event because of Buddy.
England + 18yr old stroke victim + Buddy the Rescue + Nashville = The Back in the Day K 2018
Check out the video Di sent us. What a pair!
