Pete Sanfilippo Winter Run Was Cold and Wintery

Monday, February 4, 2013

It was a cold morning in Baird Park - but at least the wind had stopped. There was snow on the ground and on the roads. A bit of salt by the park folks and the roads were clear! By race time at 10:00 am, it was sunny and pleasant out.

Runners enjoyed the new course without traffic. The out and back two times allowed spectators to cheer on the runners at the midpoint of the race. Hot, homemade soup by Race Director Conni Grace made the after-race festivities warm and fun. It was great to see some old friends in the middle of a cold winter.

The concensus of the runners was that we should keep the Pete Sanfilippo Winter Run at Baird Park in the future. Conni Grace will work on it for next year, too.

Many thanks to Conni Grace and Wayne McDaniel for all their work in preparing for this race. Also, thanks to the volunteers who braved the cold to make this race a success. Congratulations to all the runners for coming out and enjoying the day in the park.
