September 14, 2014: iRUNpigs Event

On Sunday, September 14, 2014 I participated in the iRUNpigs event which was held by the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, the AAA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. The event, which is for the Iron Pigs Charities, consisted of a 5k, a“piglet run”for kids, and a walk. While I didn’t think I was ready for a 5k run, I did feel good about doing the 1.5 mile walk. Aside from the Alzheimer’s Association Walks, I have not participated in any races / walks. The event was nice as we received a t-shirt, a calendar, a raffle ticket for autographed and other items they were raffling off, and a voucher for a hotdog and a soda. Although there weren’t any placings / prizes for the walk, just the 5k, I was the second walker to cross the finish line which I was happy with. As you crossed the finish line they had water and then a table where you could get a bag of chips or a muffin. Overall, it was a great day!
