Another road race? I am sick of trying to plan my day around these races. I understand that they raise money for organizations, but I am tired of them being in my neighborhood, disrupting traffic, life in general. There has got to be another place for them to run; high school track, dilboy field or tuft's track. Give the people of these neighborhood a break. I have already spoken to the mayor and the alderman but I guess it didn't do much good.
