Check out the results of run 14, our last run for the 2022 season. It's been a great year, and I certainly have enjoyed the time we have spent together. Here are a few stats you may find interesting. Total runners participating - 82. Perfect attendance - 3 runners (Kermit, Kim, and Bill). By the way, I am not counting run 9, where we had the downpour during the run and all results were lost - so we are working with a total of 13 runs. More stats - 46 of 82 runners (56%) only made 1 or 2 runs during the season. That's an interesting observation. Running at 6pm during summertime is tough! There were a few of these that were sidelined due to injury, accidents, moving, etc. In the next category (making 3 to 10 runs), there were 29 runners (36%). Lastly, there were 7 runners that made 11 or more runs (8%), which is pretty difficult due to summer vacations and other activities. We fed about 40 people last night, and had only a few pieces of pizza left over, so that worked out about right. With the threat of bad weather at 4:30pm, I was expecting about 10 to 15 runners, and about 30 showed up. You never know! I'm glad we were able to finish on a strong note. So that's it until next year. If I had any of your times incorrect, let me know and I'll get it corrected. And - be careful getting those runs in during these "dog days" of summer. Hydrate and watch out for drivers who MAY NOT be watching out for you! I'll update my email list so I can give you advance notice of when we crank up next May. It's been fun - take care of youselves - and I'll see you out and about. Doug

Wow, who can ever figure out the weather? Future radar looks like there might be a clearing window between 5 and 6pm. I plan to set up for the run and order pizza, unless it gets a lot worse in the next 30 or 45 minutes. I expect our numbers to be down because of the uncertainty. However I will provide pizza under the pavilion even if we can't run. Let your judgement be your guide. I was hoping the weather would not be an issue today, but Mother Nature has thrown us a curve ball! Give me a call at 334-524-5021 around 5:45pm if you like and I'll let you know what is going on at the Rec Center.
