This edition of Picture of the Week is a no-brainer... we had to get something from K-Rockathon XIII, held last Saturday at the Cayuga County Fairgrounds in Weedsport.
CNYRadio.com and CNYTVNews.com share a new Picture of the Week every Monday at 7:00am. We're always looking for reader submissions -- radio or TV, current events or blasts from the past. Send those shots to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's America's Biggest 15K Road Race, with over 10,000 runners, including Governor David A. Paterson.

The 3rd annual Bill Leaf Kickball Tournament was held at Onondaga Lake Park on May 17th. The event is a fundraiser for a scholarship named in memory of the WSYR News reporter who was killed by a drunk driver in 2006. (Updated at 1:50pm with complete photo caption.)
