Minor change of plans, Frost Toes. Instead of gathering at Panera West in Springfield on Saturday, Oct. 4, let's all head down to Chatham for the First Annual Heroes Run for Hope. This is a 5-mile race that's being organized by Jenni Gardner, a strong supporter of Abe's Army, the HalfWits and the Frost Toes.
Not only that, but the race is a benefit that will raise money for the Marrow Foundation.
I have a soft spot in my heart for races that raise funds for a worthy cause. I'm also excited to see a 5-mile race on the local schedule, because that's a fun distance to run. And Jenni is a good friend who's been a great member and advocate of training groups like the Frost Toes, so I'm quite happy to support her efforts.
Here's another benefit: the 4 Seasons restaurant in Chatham has great French toast for breakfast after a Saturday race.
I'll post all the details, including registration info and start time, as soon as I know them. If you'd really rather not run in this race, I'll post an alternate 5-mile route but someone will have to volunteer to put out water.
Make plans to run in this race. See you Oct. 4!
