On Wednesday July 16, 2008 the annual Main Street Festival returns to Middletown. This is one of the more spectator friendly events for a 5k race and offers plenty of activity to keep family and friends occupied during the 20-40 minutes it takes most participants to cross the finish line.
Not your typical 5k is a fitting name for this run. The first time I ran in Middletown was the only time I have ever done a showing in my running gear. I was working with a young couple that requested a second look at a house in Middletown so I tossed on my running shorts and my Ravies Tee Shirt. I wound up talking them out of that house because of the extensive work required and their limited budget but the race finish photo turned out pretty good and I have used it ever since.
My second running of the race in 2007 offered another first. At that time I was a relative "Newbie" on ActiveRain and planning to meet one of the old timers at the race. Afternoon thundershowers brought torrential rain but surprisingly George Souto did not cancel and attended My Rainy Run.
Hopefully the third time will be a charm with blue skies and low humidity but regardless of the weather I am pre-registered and will be running.
