Yesterday was the Blue Cross Broad Street Run here in Philadelphia. This is the biggest 10 miler on the east coast, and I think it could even be the biggest 10 miler in the country. Over 40,000 official runners registered for this race and at only $45 it is still a great deal.
Just like most popular races are doing now, this one went to a lottery system last year. I do not know how many people registered for the lottery, but a lot of disappointed posts sprinkled social media when the lottery winners were announced.
With this race being so popular, there were bound to be bandits high tailing it down Broad Street stealing runner’s resources and medals and causing chaos among the packed crowd of runners.
One man was determined not to let that happen.
Batman came all the way from Gotham City to patrol the streets of Brotherly Love and make sure no bandits invaded the race.
And here are 10 selfies he took while doing just that.

A Great Run.
So, Batman finished the run and did not have any problems with bandits. He did hear a police radio mention people walking in the streets with runners and ran into action, but they were just normal people trying to get where they needed to go.
That’s it for now. Come back Wednesday for a very special episode of The MidPack Podcast.
