If you've been hiding out in the Batcave for the past few months, you may not know that the RRCA 5K National Championship was held today...the 31st annual running of the Woodstock 5K!
First, let me say FANTASTIC JOB VOLUNTEERS! Record numbers of people gave their time and energy to stage this signature event. Great job Dennis Dunn in putting on the race! Awesome presidential leadership throughtout, Ed Turner! Brooke Nelson, you're a coordinating rock star! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to the literally hundreds of people who made this event happen today.
A huge thank you also goes to everyone from Anniston High School. I don't know of many races that offer an air conditioned auditorium for the awards ceremony, and I know the 1400 runners appreciated the chance to cool off indoors. It was especially appreciated considering that the faculty and staff return to work in less than 48 hours, and we know that many sweaty runners can leave a little bit of a mess behind!
Reuben Mwei and Janet Cherobon-Bawcom were the overall male and female winners respectively.
