Runs were fun

To the editor:

As fall begins, I just wanted to extend a belated thanks to the village of Saranac Lake and to Adirondack Health for making the Thursday night summer Fun Runs possible, and especially to all the volunteers who showed up every week to make it happen.

My 2-year-old son started the season scared to run the course, but ended up looking forward to it every week. The volunteers all knew every child’s name, were encouraging and even had a certificate at the end of the season for each and every child who had even signed up just once. In this age of overly competitive sports, they really knew how to make athletics fun for the kids. And kudos for having different levels for adult participants, too. We’re looking forward to next summer!
