Fort-4-Fitness ROCKED!

September 28, 2009

race 1Saturday was a cool and overcast morning. This was great for the thousands of runners who passed through Southwood Park during miles 7-10 of the Fort-4-Fitness half marathon.

The coolness didn’t stop hundreds of neighborhood residents from getting up early on the weekend to cheer on family members, co-workers, friends and total strangers as they made their way toward their 13.1 mile goal.  Neighbors pulled lawn chairs out in their front yards to watch the spectacle. There were signs of encouraging the runners. Some people were waving flags or holding posters.

One home on Indiana Avenue was playing Queen’s “We Will Rock You” on a boombox for the runners. It must have been good running music – because there were more than a few “thumbs-up” given.race 2

Southwood Park is already looking forward to next year’s race and hoping that we remain on the half-marathon route. It was alot of fun! Thanks, runners! race 3
