The Numbers Game
Packet pickup for the Community Bank of Elmhurst 4 on the 4th took place over the weekend at Dick Pond Elmhurst. Handing out numbers, goodie bags, T-shirts and everything else associated with packet pickup, Anne Klein (left) Karen Leavitt (center) and Lori Wallace of the Elmhurst Running Club gave up their Sunday afternoon for the cause. It was worth it. We still expect close to 1,000 runners on Friday, and the more packets given out, the better off we'll all be. Next pre-race pickup is 3-7 p.m. on Thursday at Elmhurst College. I'll admit I love this stuff, but we're into the nerve-wracking stage now.
