Hats off to Marty Breen from Forward Motion and Katalyst Productions for all the effort put into bringing back this town tradition last Sunday morning. Thanks as well for all the volunteers that held flags, worked the water stations and cleaned up after all was finished. It was a wonderful event...perfect weather, great vibe and a chance to support the Discovery Center here in our own town. The kids races afterwards were a great addition this year, and seeing their joy in running and racing with each other bodes well for the future of this sport. Lastly, playing the National Anthem before the start was very moving as a silence fell over the crowd as the song began. All in all it was a terrific family event and with over 800 runners registered at $35.00 apiece I hope the Discovery Center had their expectations met as well. Can't wait until next year !! One last thing...the Mariachi Band was awesome, all that was missing was the margarita machine.
