|The racers starting the half marathon. The sky was overcast but the air was muggy and heavy.|
|Next, the 10k runners start out. That's Jim wearing #142.|
|A few canoe-heads and a troop of firefighters begin the 5k run.|
|The 5k finish line. Cheers to the Huntsville Fire Department!|
Our very own Jim ran the 10k and came in 9th overall out of 108 runners and 2nd for his age group. I'm so proud of him! Next up for Jim: his first try-a-tri and eventually a triathlon.
Overall, the event was a great day filled with music, food and community spirit. The organizers have said they'll do it again next year so we hope to see you here!
|Back at home, Jim with his medal and prize. The next day he was walking a little slowly...|
