The Carey clan, originally 14 children who grew up spending summers in Shelter Island, has sprouted children and grandchildren in abundance. For the 40th anniversary of the 10K, it would be only natural that we’d field a multi-generational team of runners and walkers. Involving us in any event requires an understanding of the Law of Large Numbers. Or Murphy’s Law.

As of early this week, there were 1,450 runners and walkers signed up to participate in Saturday’s 40th Annual Shelter Island 10k Run/5k Run/Walk with many more expected to register before the race is started.

Fuel up for the run with Ms. Robey’s carb-filled recipe.
Vigorous exercise is a good excuse for eating well, so the Shelter Island 10K is a highlight of my summer. My husband started training for and running the 10K in 1992. At the time, I was pregnant with our second child, and my spouse and I were gaining weight at about the same rate. Twenty-five years later, he is still running, this year alongside the son I gave birth to back then.
