The Adventures and Musings of 2 BFFs Separated by a Continent

Pat’s Run 17 April 2010

Today is the Pat’s Run in Tempe and San Jose. The Greater Philadelphia ASU Alumni Chapter hosted our second annual Shadow Run.

Remembering 42

We had about 25 runners, including a large group of veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA).

The sun came out just long enough for the 4.2 mile run along the towpath in Manayunk. It was awesome to see the pack of maroon shirts moving down the trail.

The first runner came in at 36 minutes. But it was a fun run, not a timed run with prizes. (Though the ten year-old who ran the whole way with his Vet dad totally deserves one!) We hope to expand every year, and the Alum who owns Machismo Burrito said the town would love to make it a big deal and shut down Main Street for the morning! Sweet.

What a great day! RIP, Pat.
