On Sunday May 8th (Mother’s Day) I will be directing the 7th Annual Wa Wa Wally Waddle 5k and Kids 1 Mile Run. The Waddle raises money send kids to YMCA Camp Segowea, the most amazing place on Earth. For many readers of this blog, attending the Waddle might be a bit of a drive as it takes place at Vassar Farms in Poughkeepsie, NY, but I would suggest that it is as much a destination race as many of the big marathons people travel for. I doubt any of those marathons even offer homemade pies as prizes!
On to the brag. I ran in the USATF Masters National 10k Championships on Sunday with my new team the Central Mass Striders. I finished 19th overall, 3rd on my team, and the team finished 2nd.
