Event #13 - Memorial Day Dash

We hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! We spent lots of time relaxing and ended the weekend with race #13 - the Memorial Day Dash. Since it was Memorial Day, the race began with the National Anthem being played and a moment of silence for all those serving currently and also those who have served in the past. It was really nice.

The race started outside of the Nashville Sounds (our very own minor league baseball team) stadium. We got to run into the stadium and on the field and then made our way around a few other Nashville landmarks until we reached a cemetery nearby. The money that they made from the race will go to restore the cemetery. We looped in and out and in and out of the cemetery paths and finally made our way to the finish line! It was a great race and we hope to do it again next year.

Here are the official results from the race:
236th place - Sara Ross - 31:19
237th place - Nate Towne - 31:19

Not our best, but definitely looking good! :) We're excited with the time and hope to improve on it in our upcoming races!

We took a few pictures before & after, so here are those...
