Run #34 (DC and 33 states), Wednesday, June 26, 7 p.m.
New York, Buffalo: 5th Annual Broadcasters Celebrity 5K

Checking in.

I was lucky to meet a couple from the New York City area who go to a couple of runs a year around the USA. This is Dave from the Bronx (kneeling so you can see the sign) and Janine from Jersey.

The three of us after the 5K.

Just before 7 p.m. at the starting line...

and we are off...

The last half mile.

and the finish

25:35, 91st out of 273 who ran, 8th out of 23 in my age group.

After the run, lots of bananas, beer, pizza, and some great hot dogs.

Below is another couple I was fortunate to meet, Lily, and Bob. They both live in Buffalo. Lily is a big hockey fan, and she finished 2nd in her age group in today's 5K. Congrats Lily.

The 5K course included running around the First Niagara Center which brought back fond memories.

This is where the Dallas Stars won the Stanley Cup.

Tomorrow night a 5 mile run in Bloomfield, New Jersey, close to New York City.

33 States and DC Completed (blue).
