Congrats to all the people that participated in the Fools Five races this weekend. Wow! almost 3100 people running and walking for a great cause. It was great seeing a lot of old friends and meeting a bunch of new ones. Hope to see a bunch of you on June 2nd. It sounds like the trails at Chester Woods will be hopping with a crazed runners again this year.
