Race #92 – Veteran’s Awareness 5K

Another lunch run today, and the last veterans’ related race for the year.  I love these races.  The medals are generally patriotically themed, and support causes for groups that I can really get behind.

It’s so incredibly warm around Da Lou right now.  Today, it was about 50°, which made for an incredibly foggy day.  When I went out, there was still plenty of fog, and this crazy springlike feel to the air.  It’s no wonder that there’s some potential this weekend for severe weather.

The Greenway awaited, though, and I had to go out and put it to good use.  Once again, all my kilometer splits were below ten minutes each, and I ended up with a great run.  I know I’ve said it before, but it still amazes me when I think of how far I’ve come this year.  Fifty minutes for my 5k’s had been a goal for so long, and now, it’s a pretty regular occurrence.

So as the year winds down, I’m beginning to reflect on an epic year of running, thanking those around me for the support, and God for the continued good health that allows me to keep putting my feet on the trail.

This race benefitted The Fisher House Foundation.
