The Melon Run

Yesterday, on 4th of July, we got up early and headed to Westside Park for the 34th Annual Melon Run. There were 500 people at the run, the biggest 5k we’ve been to so far. After the 5k there was a one mile kids’ run, and then awards. There were awards given to the top 3 people in each age group in both male and female categories. Instead of giving out metals like most races, the Melon Run gave out melons. Each winner got to take home a watermelon grown especially for the Melon Run. At the end, they had extra watermelons, so they handed them out to anyone who wanted one, so we got to take one home even though we didn’t win! 🙂
