Last week’s fatal shootout that left five Houston police officers wounded caused many people, including runners, to ponder how they could support law enforcement in their community. Coincidentally, February brings three nearby races that have the goal of benefiting local police departments.

This weekend offers two such races: 5K for the K-9 in Pasadena, and Houston’s Back the Blue 5K. The 5K for the K-9 is organized by the Pasadena Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association.
