Broad Street Run 10 Miler Recap
May 1, 2016
Broad Street Run 2016 is now in the books. This is the fourth year in a row that I’ve done this run, and despite the weather conditions, I managed to set a Personal Record (PR) for this course (Previous PR: 1:37:29 in 2014). Of all the years that I’ve participated in this event, and all of the other races that I’ve done, this may have been the toughest race for me to date! The course itself wasn’t difficult at all, but the weather made this absolutely miserable! This winter/spring has been inconsistent and that didn’t let up today. It was chilly, slightly windy and rainy from start to end.
The thing that surprised me above all was the commitment of all of the participants. Broad Street Run is a race through the city of Philadelphia, PA that brings out 40,000 people from all over the world. To put on such event, you really need the community to come together by providing their support as volunteers and spectators, and I’m sure I speak for all 40K (maybe 30K with a lot of people not showing) when I say THANK YOU… your support today made this event worthwhile! If it weren’t for me personally thanking just about every single person volunteering and spectating I may have saved myself a good 10 minutes. LOL.
As I wrap up I want to say congrats to all of the finishers, especially the first timers. I look forward to seeing you out there next year.
