2021 Summer Swing Series Complete

Finally, good weather, even better since it was pizza night! We had about 23 runners and a bunch of kids, maybe 30 to 35 total count. Didn't quite finish the pizza so I was able to send some home with a few families. Sure enjoyed seeing everyone this year! Hopefully we will be able to tee off the next series in May 2022. Be on the lookout for emails and updates on this website and Aorta's website next April. I've got a few numbers here if you are interested: 1. We ran 11 of 12 runs, with one run cancelled due to weather. 2. A total of 80 different runners participated over the 12 week period. One runner - Bill Lacy - had perfect attendance with 11 runs. Kim White, Steve Zenas, and Liz Zenas made 10 of 11 runs, and Matt Leach made 9 of 11 runs. We had many more with 6, 7, or 8 runs. We had quite a few who ran in their first Summer Swing Series this year - an estimated 26. Hope to see all of you next year! If anyone wants to continue to run on Tuesday nights - there is a smaller group of us that get together most Tuesdays about 6pm. If you would like to join us please give me a call at 334-524-5021 and I'll give you the details. And, as always, thanks to my helpers each week. I so appreciate April, Raley, Chris, and Carter's enthusiasm and assstance. It's been a fun year! It's my privilege to get to know you better and enjoy your company. Stay safe - lots of hot weather still ahead of us - and watch out for distracted drivers. If you are not aware of AORTA'S website, check it out at It is an excellent source of running information and upcoming races. By the way, results are in the right margin link "2021 Summer Swing Results". Check out your progress over the summer. Take care and stay in touch! Doug

Aug 3rd Run Update - Pizza Night

Rain chances are 30% this evening. Either way, we will run and the pizza will be there about 6:30 - so be sure you make plans to come! If we do have rain we will eat under the awning at the Rec Center. Sure have enjoyed seeing everyone this year. This is our last run of the series. Hope you can make it. Doug
