Time again for the Gobble Wobble

Gobble Wobble
I am so excited!  Not because the Beatles are on iTunes or because NKOTB is on tour... No I am excited because is time again for the Gobble Wobble in Southborough.  You can read about my experiences last year at the Gobble Wobble or check out for details.

Now in its fourth year this event is definitely a family favorite for Boroughs residents.  As soon as the leaves start to fall my kids start asking the Gobble Wobble and since my wife is enjoying running 5ks this year, she too is looking forward to the event for herself.  For me, it is just a fun time with the family.

I am proud to say, earlier this morning we finished signing up the family for each of our events.  My wife will run the 5k, my boys and I will do the family walk, and then the boys each get to participate in the Fun Run.  The weather this year looks clear, a little cold, but no rain.  Overall much better then last year.  Not only is this a ton of fun, proceeds from the event benefit the "Friends of Southborough Recreation Department".

I encourage everyone to check out this event and if you want to participate, sign up now, based on the crowds last year I bet the events fill up before Thursday.  I may not be a runner but I can wobble with the best of them, I hope to see you there.
