The 2010 run came on the tail-end of "Snowmageddon," but that didn't stop 500 people from coming out in full force.

After raising more than $10,000 for the Children's Tumor Foundation in its inaugural, "Snow-My-Goodness" year, the Cupid's Undie Run is back! Rebecca Sheir talks with Tamara Forys, one of the race's organizers, about the 2011 fundraiser: from the many ways Washingtonians have shown their generous support, to how to keep warm when sprinting a mile in your skivvies.
