Run for Mercy 5K

This past weekend was the 3rd Annual Run for Mercy 5K.  Once again, I served as the race director of sorts and helped plan this event with other staff members and volunteer committee members.

Here I am with Amy!

My friends are awesome, and many of them came out to participate in the event!

For the most part, everything went smoothly.  We had a few small issues, but we'll only improve next year!  We raised a little over $50K, so no complaints there!

I also ran the race.  Unfortunately our course was a little short, but I was pleased with my time considering that I'm not used to running in the super cold air yet!

After the race, some of my friends and I headed to Jackson's for brunch. We had a great time, and we spotted these guys who were heading to run in a red dress race of some sort.


After brunch, several of us headed across the street in Hillsboro Village to Sam's to enjoy a little college football.




It was definitely a fun day!  I of course promptly went home and crashed with exhaustion.  Planning an event is a ton of fun, but it also wears you out!
