State Rep. Joe Brennan and Bethlehem Township Commissioner Felix Barnard will be running this race, too. They've been part of a group of guys training together on weekends. Joe had no idea that Barnard is a Republican Township Commissioner. Felix had no idea that Joe is a Democratic State Rep.
Running transcends politics.
Joe told me to meet him at 2 AM one recent weekend for a training run at the corner of 6th and Linden in Allentown.
"Make sure you wear your tights!" he suggested. He said if he was late, I should just wait there.
He never showed, but I did get lots of compliments. I even got to ride in a police car.
