this afternoon i went to the nyrr club and picked up the bib and tee shirt for the joe kleinerman 10k. i'm not a fan of the kleinerman 10k as a january race. for the last decade or so it's been a fixture of the december race calendar. to make way for the kleinerman 10k, the nyrr got rid of the fred lebow 5 miler - the race that traditionally kicked off the start to the new running year. call me old fashioned, but there was a certain sentimentality (if you will) to the idea of having the nyrr race calendar begin with a nod to fred's memory.
anyway, if you're at this one on saturday - say hello!
