Martha's Run 2018

Saturday the 14th of April…a warm morning upper 60’s at 9 a.m. …it was the start of Martha’s Run which has been going on for about 20 years now in Mt lebanon…also one of the smallest number of participants I can recall in a long time….maybe the Pirates run had something to do with it…but there is something I like about a community run…probably takes me back to my days of running 40 years ago…when there were a lot of races with only about a hundred entrants…those were the days…I actually ran in pittsburgh’s great race and there were under 5,000 entrants…I no longer run as my knees are not quite what they used to be…but that doesnt stop me from enjoying a good community run… 164 more words
