Earl running the Nick Smiles 5K.

Earl D. was training for a 5K in mid-February 2013 when, through a healthy dose of FaceBook hazing, he signed up for Broad Street. He didn’t know it at the time, but training to run 10 miles in a few short weeks would not be the hardest thing Earl had to do. This year Earl will have undergone three surgeries to remove a basal cell carcinoma from his face. He has not missed a single group run since January.
