Olympic style run planned for Palo Alto this month

Dave Wottle, in the cap, sends his regrets

Palo Ato is hosting an Olympic style running race this month. Palo Altans, who are very healthy indeed, even during these times, will wear shorts and sweats and good shoes and run in circles and around a park, while being timed.
The local paper will print some of these people’s names in the local paper. Especially if you pay us $35, they say.
Also, there are 12 concerts at a local plaza.
Dave Wottle pictured above, with the cap, and shorts, will not appear. Neither at the race nor the concerts.
To our knowledge. Certainly, were he in Palo Alto, on either 9/11, 9/13, 9/14, 9/15 for example, he would be invited to the concerts. And we hope he gets vaccinated but really, its up to him. We won’t check.
These are outdoor concerts and we trust people are sensible and provide for their own safety.
The race, not so sure. Doesn’t running involve a certain amount of huffing and puffing and spitting on each other, in a friendly manly — and womanly – way?
Anyhow, the race is $35 bucks and the free concerts are free. All 12 of them. Thank you for not smoking.
