WPR Sportscast for Wednesday September 10

A few words about this week's run

Picture a run in weather that doesn't feel like a hot soup. I know it can be hard to imagine after the last few weeks, but it's going to be pretty awesome out this week. That's as good a reason to run with a group of friends as I can think of. It's starting to feel like Fall and I really can't wait for more of this lovely weather.

Upcoming Run Sport Events

Cobbs Creek 5K - September 20

The 4th Annual Cobbs Creek 5K, the year's best 5K, is coming up on September 20th. Registration is open so get up on it.
