Benefit Classic 2008
A leg injury recently put me on the DL, forcing me to skip my running season's final exam, the Mississippi Valley Running Association's annual Benefit Classic. It's a Labor Day tradition. I run the 5K, though the event also features a half-marathon (13.1 miles).
Thus, instead of running, I helped a bit at the finish line and took a few pictures and video clips.
You might see some familiar faces here.
Meanwhile, the doctor says I am to ease back into the running routine. Whether that will allow me a race before Thanksgiving (which I missed in '07 due to back spasms) remains to be seen. It's heck getting old!
