If you were not at the banquet and volunteered for a race, I have your mugs. I will definitely be at the remaining Bucks County 5K Series Races, the Broad Street Run, the Run the Gates 5 miler and the Mother’s Day 10K.
Speaking of the Broad Street Run, I have no idea who is running this year. Traditionally, we have had a tail gate after the event in Roosevelt Park. Please let me know who is running. For those of you who did not get in this year, you can still run the Bucks County Ten Miler Sunday on the Delaware Canal (runbucks.com). Disclosure: I am now working for RunBucks so expect to see my face more often at local races.
