On Saturday, Oct. 9th I completed Brigg's & Al's Run along with 15,500 other runners and walkers. It was a beautiful autumn day; sunny and in the 60's or low 70's. A perfect day for a run! This event raised over $1,000,000 for Children's Hospital. That is an amazing accomplishment.
Once again it is time for Briggs & Al's Run and walk for Children's Hospital! This event is being held on Saturday, Oct. 9th. The run starts at 10:30 am on the Marquette University campus and ends at the Summerfest Grounds. The race is an 8k which is approx. 4.95 miles. ( Eight kilometers is 51 yards short of five miles.)
On Saturday, Oct. 2nd, I attended the 50th anniversary Cudahy Purgold Cross Country meet at Sheridan Park. The Cudahy team is now the Cudahy-St. Francis team. I remember running in Sheridan Park in the late 70's and early 80's when I was a High School Cross Country runner for the Whitnall Falcons. It was a cold day for a meet but at least the rain held out until after the meet was over.
Are you a fan of Celtic Music? I am. And I am thrilled to announce that our own Garlic Mustard Pickers will be performing twice in October.
I hope all of you who are dog owners have had a chance to check out the new Dog Park! I took my dog, Jet, and she was a little scared at first but now she loves it. The Dog Park is fantastic! My whole family loves it and I look forward to using it for years to come.
