Greetings runners and walkers!! Hope everyone is back into their walking/running mode now that the summer season is over. But it is still local summer at the Jersey Shore and there are plenty of races to walk and run during the month of October. The weather is usually superb at this time of year. In my opinion, this is the BEST time of the year to run. Among the several races, this month are Halloween-Themed races, including the JSRC Deal Trick Or Trot. Yours truly ran that race in 2009 dressed up as Indiana Jones. Unfortunately, I cannot locate a photo as proof of evidence, but it was a great race and a great time.

If you plan to run or walk in any of these races, good luck and be safe. And don’t forget to have 105.7 The Hawk on as your soundtrack to get you through the races! Listen live at 1057thehawk.com, on your smartphone via radiopup.com and now on the new FREE Hawk mobile app, which can be downloaded via the iTunes store, Google Play and at 1057thehawk.com.
