10k across the Bay – November 9th
I stopped by the offices of the St. Michaels Running Festival yesterday to offer warm wishes for success to Pete Paris and Sparrow Mahoney Rogers – they are putting on the 10K Across the Bay event this coming weekend, with some 20,000 runners from all over coming to run across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Whoa! That’s a lot of people and that’s a very big bridge – 4.3 miles over the water.
Pete was there, alone, smiling broadly in the office. There was no sense of panic or hurried frantic last minute anything. About the event, he said “We’re totally ready. I LOVE this.”
And I love that this entire event is borne out of our little town!
Best of luck to all the runners and walkers, organizers, volunteers and sponsors. On the heels of the Shelter Century Fall Foliage Tour, I can appreciate how much WORK it’s taken to get to the place where they can say “we’re totally ready.”
