Participants in the Broad Street Run are planning to show their support for the city of Boston.
From the City of Brotherly Love, one popular way to show the love is apparently through one's socks. According to a recent Philly Mag blogger, and a Facebook group that has more than 1,000 members, many area sporting good stores are stocking up on red socks.
Those participating in the Broad Street Run, slated for Sunday, May 5, are planning to wear red running socks to show the love for Boston. Get it? Red ... Sox ...
Action News' Cecily Tynan Preps Red Socks
Runner and Action News meteorologist Cecily Tynan told her Twitter followers this weekend, "Tried out my red compression socks in a tempo run 2day. Test everything out b4 race day!"
If you're wondering where she got her pair, she says, "Bryn Mawr Running Company. 100% of proceeds go to #OneFundBoston."
Bryn Mawr Running Company has stores in Bryn Mawr, Media and Manayunk.
