I hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend. My weekend was packed full of activities, from visiting family and friends to organizing volunteers for another running event. Last Saturday, I helped plan the 2nd Annual Patriots Run at Lake Murray — in honor of our troops and veterans. This was a smaller run but we had a good number of participants… about 800 runners and walkers showed up bright and early at the lake. Everyone joined in the festivities and you could see the vast number of red, white, and blue costumes parading around the park. What I remember most was the several runners that took on the task of running the entire race each holding a full-size American flag. It was very inspiring and quite a sight to see!
Overall, the day was a huge success and everything went smoothly. My job at these events is to coordinate the 70+ volunteers we usually have as well as manage the Info booth. With all the tasks I had to accomplish that day, I still managed to get a pic with this patriotic couple!
