    1. Hey Barbara, glad you enjoyed this blog. Thank you for visiting.

  3. Just discovered your blog. Good luck with your goal. My best friend from hs & college lives in Allentown. I visited her & ran the Runner's World 5k in 2012 (unfortunately I had a stress fracture at the time so didn't enjoy it much.

  4. Thank you. Sorry you didn't get to enjoy the race. Guess you're all better since you just PRd a 5K =)
