Sun, Fun And Run

by altardy on April 13, 2011

The music was playing, the sun was shining, the families were gathering and the runners were running.

If you want to have a great day, go to the Groton Road Race next April and see what fun you missed by not being there this year. They had a record turn out this year and I can only see this one getting bigger and better.

This is my 2nd trip to this race in 3 years and once again it was a delight to be there.  This is a day for everyone of all different talent and enthusiam levels of running.  There are real short races for the kids, a 2k for kids and short distance running adults, a 5k and a 10k.  The volunteers ( who I believe races could not exist without) were smiling and pleasant and helped set the stage for a wonderful day. 

Betty and Jane were the 1st people I met while registering and Howard was a wealth of organizing info.  I am incorporatng 2k and 3k runs into the races I am helping organize and it was great to get his knowledge and insite.

There are 2 more entries for you to read after this one.  Those entries are about the great runners I met at the race.  You, however, should come next year and experience the whole day,  you’ll be happy you did.
