We held the first 5k Run With Rob on Nov. 9. It was very cold but also very fun. It was a race through the golf course at Bridgemill which was wonderful and I think everyone enjoyed their run. I ran with my friends and my dad. It turned warm and I think everyone was probably thankful for that. I usually play golf and ride on a golf cart on the course, but running it is extremely hard as there were a bunch of hills which made it very tough.
The run raised $1,100 for The Grey Project who was the beneficiary of the run. The Grey Project does TNR (trap, neuter, return) and feeds free-roaming cats in Cherokee County. I interviewed them a few years ago and you can read that interview on my website (www.robsrescues.com). The sponsors of the run were: Freshens Fresh Food Studio, eBryIT Computer Services, Vanessa Mullen Premier Homes, Prestige Medical Group, GSI Inc., Fun-Fare, Bridgemill Dentistry, McStatts Printing and Aroundabout Local Media.
Classic Race Services did all the timing and these are the winners in the different age groups. Overall male winner: Brent Harris; overall female winner: Caroline Olvin; overall Master’s male winner: Doug Mulkey; overall Master’s female winner: Amy Krumrey. These were the other winners in their age categories: Todd Henry Marovich, Brent Hohn, Peyton Cummings, Breanna Washam, Tiffany Fletcher, Sarah Short, Cassie Bartz, Marie McMichael, Matt Taylor, Gordon Macmillan, Melinda Eubanks, Mike Hohn, Judy Hohn, Gary Lineback and Ernest Smallman.
I thought next year we might do a golf tournament and another 5k.
