Roadkill Racers are heading out for a few different races this weekend. Mike and Chanse will be staying in town to race the Medved 5k to Cure ALS on Sunday, while I head into Poughkeepsie to visit family and race the 3rd annual Treetops to Rooftops 5k. Both races offer interesting courses. The ALS 5k finishes with a dash around the warning track of Frontier Field, Home of the Triple A Red Wings, to a finish on home plate. Treetops to Rooftops takes place across the recently completed burned up Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge to turned worlds longest pedistrian bridge Walkway Over the Hudson.
This first image is the bridge as it existed before the fire that closed it for over 30 years.
This is the bridge as it stands today.
I am hoping that my fear of heights will give me extra energy to get on and off the bridge faster than anyone else. Have a great weekend and good racing everyone!
