I love Philadelphia and I love all the beautiful parks we have in this city. My personal favorite is FDR Park in South Philadelphia. I’m doing this run to raise money for that park specifically - and conveniently it’s just near the finish line. May FDR continue to be the diverse, active, community park filled with the world’s most impressive picnic set-ups forever and always!
I haven’t run a long race since 2011 and have never done the Broad Street Run - so need all the luck / support / positive thoughts I can get!!
