It's mighty good to see April arrive on the calendar. March, and its cold temperatures, won't be missed.
In addition, the race calendar starts to pick up a bit. Here's the schedule for the weekend, brought to you courtesy of buffalorunners.com:
* Bengal Run, 5K, Buffalo State College, 9:30 a.m. Saturday, 878-6001. I had the starting time wrong in Sunday's newspaper. Registration closes at 9, the race itself begins at 9:30.
* Putting Hunger on the Run 5K, D'Youville College at 320 Porter Ave. in Buffalo, 10 a.m. Sunday, 884-5375. This is a nice little race that has a course that doesn't get much traffic over the course of the year. The cause is a good one too, as the event is sponsored by Friends of the Night People.
