RESULTS - Final Run 2012

Results are posted in the 2012 Summer Swing Results link to the right.  Take a look.  Many of you have shown great improvement as we worked through the series.  It's been a lot of fun, and I'll miss these Tuesday night runs.  As many of you know, there is a smaller group of us that continue to run on Tuesday night, throughout the year.  We meet at Westridge Park in Opelika at 6pm.  Would love to have you join us.  It's an informal run around a 1.08 mile walking loop at the park, well lit, and no traffic to worry about.  You can run your own pace and your own distance.  It's a great place to run.  If you want further details, please email me at

I'd like to thank all of  you who assisted me in putting on the Summer Swing series this year.  In particular, I'd like to thank Lori and Vince Connors, and their children Jacqueline and Brody.  All of them helped at the finish line, which freed me up to keep the grill going.  Many others helped me to set up or clean up afterwards, and I do appreciate it.

One last time, I do have one shirt left, an extra-large, if anyone is interested.  Cost is $16.

See you around,


  1. Doug, Thank you for putting on a great Summer of running and walking. We all know how hard you work to put together an event with a welcoming atmosphere, a professional feel and wonderful fellowship with other runners and walkers. We all owe you a debt of gratitude. Thank you for your unwavering dedication to the Summer Swing runs and the community!


    1. Thanks Jay. It's a lot of fun and I enjoy putting the race on. This year I had lots of help and that makes it easier. Looking forward to next May when we kick it off for our 8th year!
