'Stormy Weather' at 37th Annual
Blue Cross Broad Street Run

BY CLAY SHAW

PHILADELPHIA, PA--The best of the Philly races, and there are a number of great runs.  The Broad Street Run is 10 miles through the heart and soul of Philadelphia,  from Olney Station in the north to the finish in the Navy Yard in the south.  The 37th Annual, held Sunday, May 1, featured rain.  It wasn't just a sprinkle, but a hard, cold, soaking uncomfortable rain.  Wondering how to keep our cameras dry, yet still document the race. It was a bother, yes.  Karen and I did okay.  Noting that prior to the race, weather gal Cecily Tynan, could pull off looking good with a plastic poncho.  Most of the 40,000 registrants hunkered down in whatever shelter they could find prior to the race.  Once the race started the top runners took off maybe thinking of running fast and getting  it done.
