Yesterday I ran "the loop" up to East Falls and back just to confirm that the distance was achievable. A perfect day helped. Did 10 miles and  See more

THE STORY:

The 2016 Broad Street Run is on Sunday, May 1st.  This year's 10-miler is special to me because its 25th aniversary of my first BSR, but also because I am part of a team fundraising  for Fairmount Park and the Fairmont Park Conservancy. I ran my first Broad Street in less than 70 minutes. Years later the pace is a little slower, but is a lot more fun - the crowd has more than quadrupled!... and though its been called "worst parade ever", its an epic experience to run w/ 30,000 or so fellow humans across Philadelphia. Come out and cheer the crazies -- and please donate to the cause.

Fairmount Park Conservancy exists to champion Philadelphia’s parks. Our mission is to work as a collaborative partner to lead and support efforts that preserve and improve the parks and recreation system in order to enhance the quality of life and stimulate economic development of the Greater Philadelphia Region. We fulfill our mission by leading capital projects and historic preservation efforts, fostering neighborhood park stewardship, attracting and leveraging resources for the parks, and developing innovative programs throughout the 10,200 acres that include Fairmount Park and more than 100 neighborhood parks around the city. The Fairmount Park system is one of the largest urban park systems in the world and includes some of the region’s most famous attractions.
