Jim Albritton, through Newsocracy, captured some amazing images yesterday at the 9/11 Memorial Half Marathon. View his images at his Facebook page. One of my favorites is above. It is of the firemen who started the course 30 minutes prior to the rest of the runners.
There was a good crowd at Lakeshore Park for the event. The race was sold out, a testament to those willing to push their bodies against the heat of the day. Of course, the race is about remembering those who died in New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001; and it is great to see our little community in Mississippi come together for an event like this.
