Arlington 9-11 5k

15 Sep

We’ve been involved in the Arlington 9-11 5k since 2003: first as volunteers, and later as runners.  The race is one of the most well organized around, and has raised over 600k for 9-11 related charities. 

This year marks the 15th anniversary of September 11th, so we decided to run the race as a family (missing our oldest, who had a prior commitment).

 It was nearly 100 degrees at the start line, but the race was well supported with a water stop around mile 2. 

We let our son run ahead of us (he’s super fast) and he ended up placing in his age group!  A wonderful and memorable race!
