Woodstock Freedom Run

The annual Woodstock Freedom Run is perhaps my favorite 5K, mainly because it benefits The Hope Center.  It certainly helps to have Woodstock charm, a flat course, and gracious weather for July (around 70 degrees at race time).  And it’s always a nice surprise to chat with so many folks that I don’t see often.  It feels like a family reunion.

Lydia won a second-place age group award at 28:09.  Stephen ran very well at 30:06 and was all smiles as he crossed the line, but he’s in the 11-14 group now, competing with 18-minute finishers.  At 25:32, I was certainly no threat to 15-minute defending champ Sammy Nyamongo, but enjoyed the race all the same.

It should return to July 4 next year, so if you’re not running the Peachtree, come out for this one.

    Agree with Tina. That’s pretty awesome that y’all are running together. I’ve been trying to get my youngest to race, but a long time ago, he told me, “I’m a cyclist” 🙂 Have a safe and fun fourth!
