Thursday, Oct. 21st was my first indoor run at the Pettit National Ice Center for the winter season. (Yes, I know it's not winter yet .) This is a 443 meter track that surrounds the two hockey rinks and the speed-skating rink. This is a great way to keep running during our long winter if you don't like running outside in cold weather and you get tired of always being on the treadmill. The Pettit is a great resource that many people in the metro area are not aware of. For more info on the Pettit go to: http://www.thepettit.com/ .
The Sheridan Park Friends will plant daffodil bulbs in the ground around Sheridan Pavilion and possibly at the Patrick Cudahy statue. The group will meet on Saturday, Oct. 16th at 9 am at Sheridan Pavilion.
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.
