Black and Yellow.

Monument Avenue 10K. Mile marker 4. Though you can't tell by the black and white photo, the runners were asked if they could wear black and yellow in support of the Final Four basketball game tonight starring our very own VCU RAMS!

Did you know that there is and proper way to cheer runners on during a race? I did.

Here are some examples of what NOT to say to the runners in passing:
1. Almost finished.
2. Just a little bit longer.

1. You're doing great!
2. Keep up the good work.

Here's what I've been listening to:
