Thank you for finally posting signs along the route. It makes a big difference to people who live along the route to make alternate plans when using their car.


Seriously!?!? Look at the down botes you received ! You post a cordial , grateful even, comment expressing gratitude for early warning to make other parking / driving arrangements during the run. And you get 13 down votes!! What is wrong with people??? You saying anything less than, “you know after reading about the 5K run, I’ve decided I’ve been wrong all these years for owning a car and realize that getting rid of it is the only morally acceptable thing to do.” ; would’ve made most of the readers unhappy. SMH. World’s gone crazy and I suspect its only the beginning. God protect us!
