Who says sports reporters are out of shape?

My wife and I joined more than 1,300 others in running the Redlegs Run for Home 5K this morning. A good time, and workout, was had by all.

The race began on Mehring Way behind Great American Ball Park, continued west of Paul Brown Stadium before returning to the ballpark where it concluded near the visitors dugout.

The voice of the Bengals, Brad Johansen, and 700 WLW's Bill "Seg" Dennison served as MC's for the event. Tom Browning was the official horn-blower at the starting line.

Reds COO John Allen and his wife, WLW's Andy Furman and "Yiddy" Ambruster, and several Reds employees were among the participants.

By the way, I finished in 29:45. That's a 9:36 mile. Not bad for a sports writer, eh?

UPDATE: The Redlegs Run for Home generated more than $54,000 for the Reds Community Fund. Nice job.
