Running notebook; How many R's in brrrrrrr?

Run outside during the past few days?

I don't see many hands raised.

The racing year is about ready to start, and the two races this weekend are appropriately named at least. Here's the list, courtesy of

* Ice Man 2-Miler, Delaware Park in Buffalo, 10 a.m. Saturday. This is part of the Winter Festival, and the race picked up a new name and format from last year.

* Penguin Run, 5K, 2425 Niagara Falls Blvd. in Amherst, 11 a.m. Sunday, 549-6307 x201. It was interesting to me that this race's brochure said it was voted Western New York's best post-race party. Has anyone ever conducted such a vote? That said, this race put on a fine lunch at the Classic V Banquet Facility and would be a contender for that distinction.

By the way, I'm hoping to do a story in a week on the Lockport Y-10. If you have any stories about the race, send me a quick email at, and we'll talk. Thanks.
