VOTE FOR ANNE MAHLUM

Today's post is equal parts "hooray for Philadelphia" and "vote for who I voted for." It turns out CNN is running a "Hero of the Year" contest, and one of the ten contestants you can vote for is Philadelphia's Anne Mahlum, whose "Back on my Feet" program helps homeless people by encouraging them to get into running and giving them a support network of fellow runners to urge them along. Metaphors abound, but the fact of the matter is that the program works, and Ms. Mahlum is the hero who makes it, well, run. So vote for her!
