I am often asked why I continue to live in a crowded, overwhelming city where the rent is astronomical and rats are aplenty. BOMF has become my favorite response (food is up there too, obviously). The people I run with during those early morning runs, whether volunteers or members, have changed my life for the better.They have made the second largest city in the world feel small, supportive, and warm. If you haven't run with us, you should. If you can't run with us, please donate, or show your support on November 5th as we conquer 26.2 grueling miles through every borough of this damn city.
