Endurance

Every year around the month of May or June Independence Blue Cross along with other company sponsors team up to promote the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia, this event raises funds for various summer programs. This event got it start in 1980 with a little over 2,000 runners, today, over 40,000 runners participate in this annual event.

It’s a ten-mile distant run that starts from Friends of Shevchenko Park in the Logan, which is the northern part of Philadelphia and ends at the Philadelphia Naval Yard the southern most part of Philadelphia.

I admire these marathoners for having the endurance to complete this race, I don’t even think I can jog one mile let alone ten miles.
