Cinco de Mayo 10K

May 2, 2009

If you went to the Cinco de Mayo 10K on Saturday and didn’t have a good time, you weren’t trying very hard.

It was a lot of fun.

Anyway, here are some pictures.

Here are the results, both overall and by age groups.

And, finally, a bit of youtube magic:

Run for the Troops

January 28, 2009

The Fort Bragg USO Center is sponsoring, in conjunction with Valley Auto World, the Run for the Troops 5K on Saturday, March 7 at Fayetteville Technical Community College.

The event, which features both an adult 5K run/walk and a kids’ version, will benefit the Fort Bragg USO facility and outreach programs. In addition to being a fundraiser, the community is encouraged to come out and show its support for our local military. The 82nd Airborne Chorus will also be on hand.

It’s $20 to pre-register for the adult event and $12 for the kids’ event. The fees bump up to $25 and $15 on race day.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged! You can do it here.

Pounding the pavement

November 17, 2008

Our good friend Bill Dubois sent us this note:

On Nov 9, 2008, my wife Julia, John Combs and John Somerindyke ran the OBX Marathon (their 1st). My son Cody (14) ran his first 1/2 marathon. The web sit for the official results is:<

I checked the registration and believe there were 30 marathon runners from Fayetteville and 22 more runners in the 1/2.

They all trained very hard and did a wonderful job. Cody was second youngest in his race. They did not have an age group for him so they scored him with the 15-19 year olds. He finished 13 out of 38. Overall ,he came in 298 out of 2771 runners.

FYI, Cody said he wants to train to hopefully run the full OBX marathon in 09.  All I can say is “I’m blessed.”

He also passed along some pictures, which can been seen here.
