Runners rock the streets

 

Mick Jagger, Tina Turner and Robert Palmer were winners in the first Peace Day 5K run.

All you need is… one man!

 

Bermuda’s L’Enfant Terrible, Tony Brannon might just be my hero. He’s certainly my example of the power of one. Take one man with a vision, a lot of nerve and the ability to galvanize Bermuda’s local talent, sponsors and volunteers while twisting the arms of international artists and you get an impresario with a lot of guts. I like his hair too. ..
