Ashe County Spring Solstice 5k Run 3/21/2009: Results


photo: taken by Ed Hurst on Anita's camera

Yesterday was the 1st annual Ashe County Spring Solstice 5k. A few days after qualifying for the National 24-hour team I shared my news with friends and express concern for travel expenses. Almost immediately I found myself on a planning committee with Rita Prevette from Ashe County Parks and Recreation, Martin Little from Little's Health and Fitness and community member and fellow passionate runner Shawn Horton.

These folks wanted to work together put on a fund raiser that would assist with my travel expenses to Italy for World's in May. Together we decided a 5k run would be a good way to kick off spring and celebrate fitness in our little mountain community. A portion of the proceeds from the run and silent auction would go to my travel and a portion to Ashe County Parks and Recreation for their proposed retractable climbing wall.

With only 7 weeks lead time, 63 people registered for the 5k run and 1 mile fitness walk. Although cold-temperature did not leave the 20's during the race, the day was sunny and pleasant. Energy and spirits high and the community enthusiasm and support for the event fabulous! Local people and businesses were very generous donating to the silent auction as was Montrail.

I ran with folks-yet not in the traditional sense-running ahead-cheering and moving on when I got too cold to stay in one place anymore.

I am not sure how much money was raised (clearing the expense of the t-shirts and awards I think it is over $1,000. Yay! Shawn will total everything up by Wednesday.

Organizers (including me) were pleased with the event and look forward to offering it again next spring! I deeply thank all the runners, walkers, supporters, generous donors and for all those who are curious, supportive and cheering me on for May!

Full results are listed below:
(I can't quite seem to figure out how to post a chart without it getting wharbled...yet I think if you look close you can figure it out!)

YAY YAY YAY!!!!!

It was *our* First 5K, and when I say our, I mean.....My first run (so to speak) and Ed's first oportunity to shoot a 5K! So actually, let's give credit where credit is due. The pic. is compliments of Ed Hurst via. Anita's camera! :D As I ran, jogged and ummm...walked a little, Ed was out there waiting and freezing and waiting for my return. In the mean time he snapped off a few shots to share!

We had a Great time and are already planning to be there next year....there *will* be a next year for this, Right?!?

The turnout was Fabulous! It was great to see the support that our community is willing to put behind one of our very own and the dedication toward making the retractable climbing wall a reality! WoW!

I'm looking forward to this wall ya' know! :) I think that we should do the Inagural Climb together....You game?

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
