The Sharon Classic (just 4 days late!)
What with the passing of my friend Pat last week, I am late getting to a story on the annual fund raising road race and walk put on by The Sharon Daycare Center. Another great turnout was there, both runners and walkers. Five miles is mapped out from the center of the green, down South Main, West Woods, Boland and back up 41 to the finish line in front of the town hall. The weather was great for the runners, with cool temps and low humidity at the start time of a little after 10AM. As the next hour proceeded, the thin clouds burned off and it turned absolutely gorgeous in my mind. I walked the five in one hour and seven minutes and 36 seconds I think it was. I try to participate as often as I can, as it's roughly the annual anniversary of my heart surgery, now at 15 years! The walk is always very enjoyable and there are always many friends out there as well. John Perotti, local banker extraordinaire from The Salisbury Bank was there along with his two daughters and a grandchild and a family black lab as well. John and different family members have participated for years. If you weren't there or never have joined in, why not come join us next year! For the walkers, it's no race. It's the being there and enjoying Sharon and supporting the cause!
