Favorite Students Run event
“I can’t narrow this down to one choice! Would have to be Broad Street Run – especially at the finish line with all the Students Cheering other student on, then the Half and Full Marathon culminating with the Appreciation Dinner!”
I can’t run without
“My students, my hat, and my tutu!!”
