"Frostbite 5K" Race

As some of you may be aware, my oldest son (now 19 years old) has autism. My wife and I are both involved in the Pittsburgh-area autism support groups (my wife more than I...). So when we found out about a 5K race that was an autism fundraiser, I naturally wanted to be involved.

The race was held this last Saturday. Leading into the weekend I was concerned that the weather would put a damper on the event. They were calling for rain and snow, with falling temperatures, for the day of the race. Fortunately the actual weather wasn't nearly as bad as they had predicted, and over 300 runners showed up to participate.
