I want to sign up for the run, honestly though I want the shirt too! Does anyone know if there are still shirts?

I don’t kmow if shirts are still there, but the race is a lot of fun. I love running streets that I grew up using and that once a year I can run down the middle of them. Simple things for simple minds! Happy 4th of July!!!

Thanks 911runnergirl, I know the shirt thing is stupid 🙂 but it’s my first 5k, doubt I can run the whole thing but as long as there are walkers I assume I won’t be last.. but wanted a shirt to show for my 1st time!

Looking forward to fun run!

I walked 5K today in one go without collapsing, so I am IN 🙂 So excited.

I’m a little curious about the course, though. They’ve changed it drastically this year.

I went to the website and then used Google Maps to plot the new course. I wanted to find out where the mile markers would be, just because I’m a bit nerdy like that, and Google Maps says that the course, as plotted, is 5.1 km – anyone know why they made it bigger?

AnonRunner – it’s not stupid at all. I was so excited to get my first shirt, too, two years ago!

And there is no chance you’ll be last, not if I’m walking it, that’s for sure 🙂
