5k run/walk against crime & drugs

8/3/2009:

5k run happening now

Totally forgot about this – but tonight (starting at 7pm) is the 18th annual 5k run/walk against Crime & Drugs. Starts and finishes at Pier A Park. Be alert for street closings!

Since most 5k’s are the same – here’s a video I made a couple years ago! Yay for re-treads!

I believe it’s for Alzheimer’s research?

Anyway, terrible timing for a race (yet again), but at least we had plenty of notice about the street closure this time.

that didn’t appear to help traffic all that much. between the race and the constant stream of idiots jaywalking by the PATH, I was just waiting for some frustrated driver to run someone down. was pretty comical.

Maybe if they want to hold an event to prevent crime, they can start w/ the little stuff and do it passing out flyers asking the commuters to NOT cross the road when it says DO NOT CROSS. I must have seen a couple dozen or so jaywalk every time a train disgorged its load of passengers.

Still say all these races should be held Sunday mornings. You don’t close roads by a mass transit hub during rush hour. That is just dumb.
