RUN4KIDS RECAP

Thanks to everyone who turned out for the Tennessee Baptist Children's Home Run4Kids this weekend. It was a record year for the annual event which raises awareness of and funds for the Home providing family to children who would have non otherwise. More runners than ever ran in the 5K and that means more financial support than ever was raised for this vital ministry.

It was a beautiful morning for those running the 5K course winding it's way through the shaded campus of The Tennessee Baptist Children's Home. Here are just a few pics from this years festivities:


Randy Elrod
crosses he finish line and later took home a trophy on behalf of the church with the most registered runners: The People's Church.


Brian Seay crosses the finish line and later takes home only the satisfaction of living through a 5K...and a complimentary water bottle from Chick-fil-A for just showing up and asking, "Hey, can I keep this water bottle from Chick-fil-A?"


I find that running a race, really a race of any kind, while holding a pistol in the air is the best way to say, "Hey, I'm running here. Please move out of my way," when you're too winded to really just say that the usual way, you know, with words and all.


Thanks to the cow (cheater) from Chick-fil-A...


...and WAY-FM in Franklin, TN for sponsoring this year's Run4Kids.

Seth! You crack me up. Frankly, it didn't even occur to me how ironic it is to see a photo of Shaun with a gun...and you're second statement, well, I'd comment, but I'm laughing too hard.

I was going to say something, but I've forgotten what it was now...
