Harbor Town 5K
The Harbor Town 5K was last night and from the size of the crowd I expect this may have been their biggest turnout. It was a fun run as usual as the course starts on Island Drive and then goes through the shady, tree-lined streets of Harbor Town. Lots of residents were out spraying people with garden hoses as they ran by - a welcome bit of relief in the humidity I can tell you. There was also a group of neighbors handing out what I swear looked like Jello-shots and I should have grabbed one just to find out but was too busy trying to breathe and keep running. Race results will be posted in the next couple of days at the Memphis Runners Track Club website: http://www.memphisrunners.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=site.display&pageId=18&parentPage=18
The race ends at Miss Cordelia's where everyone congregates.
I didn't get the name of the band but they were good.
