The Running Realtor: September 2008

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

Last Day of Summer Fun at the Distance Run

Runners make their way to the start of the Philadelphia Distance RunThe weather this morning was great for the Philadelphia Distance Run as a record number of participants made their way to the starting corrals for the 13.1 mile event.

With over 13,000 finishers the course was quite congested moving through the downtown city streets.  Even after 8.5 miles the runners were relatively thick as I pulled off to the side for a photo as we crossed the Falls Bridge over the Schuylkill River.Falls Bridge Half Marathon Crossing

In this case as with most the real fun of the run comes before or after the main event.  While the sun beats down on you for 13.1 miles there are times when you certainly question your logic of spending a bundle to travel to a race. 

Some runners customize their shirts with sayings or pin notes on their back and one that caught my eye today said Running Costs $7.50 per Mile. I dwelled on the theory for awhile and must be doing something wrong because I cannot even do a 5k ( 3.1 miles ) that cheap.

My next big event is the ING Hartford Marathon coming up on October 11, 2008.  In the meantime if you'd like to talk about Running or Real Estate on the Connecticut Shoreline contact me, Dan@CummingsTeam.com or call my Access Line at 203-672-2455.
