“I love running. It’s freeing, stress relieving, [allows] social time with friends, and permission to eat what I want,” Falbo said. “Running races out of town also give me an excuse to travel and see new places and meet new friends.”
The costs to travel to the Netherlands is extensive and only part of Falbo’s way is paid by the United States of America Track and Field. From 5:30 to 7 p.m. Saturday, March 16, there will be several auction items to bid on at Pacers & Racers, 3602 Northgate Court, New Albany. Proceeds will help defray the travel costs for Falbo, who will be on hand to greet friends and supporters. Refreshments and appetizers will be served.
Some of the auction items include six-month membership to Louisville Athletic Club, passes to the YMCA, running shoes and restaurant gift certificates.
