I plan on working off my trick-or-treat candy at the 5K this Saturday….woo-hoo!! More candy corn, please! Animal_lover, hope to see you there 🙂


I’m all for a race but one should learn a little bit more about Project Play before considering supporting this group.


Great to have a 5K race nearby. No crack-of-dawn commute to NYC for those early morning races in Central Park: you get up, you race, then head to breakfast. I’m so there.
