Week 12 Results - Pizza Run

Our 2023 series has come to an end, and it was memorable. We had 51 runners last night, a high count for the series. We knocked out 16 pizzas, without a problem. And the weather was good, no rain. We won't say anything about the heat, right? But we all made it through, and are better and tougher runners/walkers because of it. Proud of all of you! As an aside, I agreed to an informal run next week, Tuesday August 8th, 6pm, for anyone interested. I'll provide Gatorade and cups and you bring anything else you might want or need. Much thanks to Raelee Fenn and her father Thomas, for pictures that they took. When I have more information on the availability of the pictures, I'll post it here. Also much thanks to Chris Cannon for organizing the photography effort, and to Chris, Carter Cannon, and Raley Thorn for their help at the finish line and with the pizza table. Much appreciation to my wife Marion, for making the pizza run and for always being supportive of our run. She has made more than a few supply trips for me when I forgot things! Much thanks to Bob Banks for his kind words. Reckon it was all true? I'm too old to remember. :-). Many others have assisted over the years, and I appreciate you all. I can't say enough about the friendships that have developed over our 20 years of runs, it's been wonderful. I do have someone who is looking into continuing the Summer Swing runs next year, so if it all works out, maybe I can run with you all in 2024! Then I will finally understand how challenging the hills really are, LOL! :-). That's it for now - stay safe and stay hydrated, and I will see you on the 8th for our informal run. And again - more info on the pictures will be posted here, as soon as I have it. If you have any questions, give me a call at 334-524-5021. Always here for you! Doug
