Among the brokers that course through the neighborhoods along Broad Street in Philadelphia will be the constitution executive Dawn Angelique Roberts. Roberts, a former high school and college, and go runner, last ran the Broad Street Run, while in high school. When asked why she decided to participate in the race this year, Roberts said, “The Broad Street Run is a popular race and I thought it would be nice to run it again, since [last] was run over 20 years”. Roberts said he also “decided to run again for losing weight and running!” To prepare to run this year, she began training in January 2011, running five or six days a week.
The Blue Cross Broad Street Run benefits the American Cancer Society. Roberts will run tomorrow on behalf of Team Determination, in memory of her father, who died of lung cancer and her best friend Cynthia Harmon, who died of breast cancer in 2006. As a result of its execution, Roberts said many of her friends and family have decided to participate in several road races / breeds of fundraising.
Roberts recommends the Blue Cross Broad Street run because it is a challenge and fun. She plans to continue working. His next event will be the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Mother’s Day. She participated in the Komen event years ago with her friend Harmon, who walked as a “survivor.” She also is assisting in the coordination of a 5-km race with the National Association of Black Journalists.
Indeed, the record of winning on Sunday is 45 minutes, 14 seconds set by Patrick Cheriuyot in 2007. Not only is the time Cheriuyot the course record, but also is the fastest 10 miles ever recorded in the United States.
