Today, Bethlehem police hosted a 5k in Lasso's honor. Over three hundred runners - many of them from the law enforcement community -participated. Some brought their dogs, or pushed babies in strollers.
One bottom-feeding blogger ran, too.
Having years of experience running from cops, I expected to win. But my grandson's dog, Suki, kept slowing me down.
The little mutt couldn't keep up.
On top of that, two NorCo deputies had keeled over in the final mile. So I had to sling them over my shoulders and finish the race with them and the dog.
When I crossed the line, DA John Morganelli was standing there, grinning. He had beaten me by two minutes. So had Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan.
But Hizzoner's pretty daughter beat us all.
The overall race winner, I believe, was Freemansburg Mayor Gerald Yob. He ran in his suit.
The big hit at this race?
The mounted police, of course. Pharo was eating up all the attention from kids and moms.
