OH I’m so tardy. May was one of those months where events just exploded all over the place, and I got behind.
I did go to some fantastic, and inspirational events and one of them was
The Broad Street Run, as well as Team Philly’s Tail Gate Party at FDR
Park after the event.
“In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle
of the pack, or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of
satisfaction in that.”
-Fred Lebow, New York City Marathon co-founder
“The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”
Melinda Hill, Rachel Johnson, Ann Marshall and Jessica Hamilton

I took this shot off of Team Philly’s Facebook page
. Most of the runners I spoke with told me that running with a friend was a great motivator, but also the bands that were along the way, the high fives from strangers, the bell ringing, claps and cheers. They heard you and it made a difference.
Paulette Brown celebrated her finish in the Broad Street Run, and tonight she’s going to be on Wheel of Fortune. Can’t wait to see how much she’s going to win.
James Billups, Pinkie, Cedric Edwards and guest
Team Philly founders Ross Martinson and Sarah Walmsley
I learned that Team Philly is a great organization. Not only is it great for exercise, it’s a great community, and you know what it’s a great motivator. I saw people of all sizes out running in their organization, and in the Broad Street Run for that matter. So if you’re looking to get off the couch, and out into the world, look them up, they don’t bite.
