More than 200 runners came out for the SCSU Homecoming 5K this morning. I had the pleasure of announcing their names when they crossed the finish line.

It was the first time I have ever done that and I learned that it's not easy. First, you have to wait until you can see the number on their shirt (sometimes it's on the thigh or the back). Then you have to look at a list of 200+ numbers to find the name. Then if you have to hope you can pronounce it correctly. All this in a matter of about 5 seconds. And god forbid there are 3 or more runners coming in at the same time.

But we had a great time. It was fun and cool watching men and women, young and old do something that I'm to out of shape to attempt. Congratulations to all those who participated. See you next year!
