Christy Bare (pictured above middle) sent in the following race report:
"I ran the first race in the Rutherford county Race series this past Sunday. It was called the Run for your Valentine Skirt Chaser 5K. The girls could wear skirts and got a 3 minute head start from the guys. It was a lot of fun and many people wore skirts or valentines outfits. My friends and I unknowingly wore hot pink and black-that's me in the middle of the pic. I had a 5k PR at 28:47 and got 3rd in my age group. The prizes were wooden hearts with a satin ribbon. Cute idea, fun run!!"Kim Sweetland destroyed her PR at the 26.2 with Donna Marathon in Jacksonville, FL. Kim ran 3:00:45 to finish 10th Female & 3rd in her Age Group. Awesome!
