Homecoming USA

Now that the busy homecoming weekend is over I can get back to a regular work schedule. We had 6 events this past weekend. Four of those homecoming 5k's. Tower Hill, Wilm. Friends School, Ursuline, and Sallies. A marathon relay in Dewey Beach on Saturday plus a 5k in Claymont on Sunday. Wednesday took us to Dover for the 3rd Governor's Cup 5k. This noon start was for state employees as part of the Del A Well program. Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield were sponsors. Gov. Minner and Lt. Gov. John Carney were on hand to support the runners and walkers and to say a few words of thanks for all the support over the years. The weather was awesome and we had 301 finishers in the 5k run walk and another 50 in the one mile walk. I saw many of our regular runners and got to chat with the Governor prior to the start. Did you know that Gov. Minner is big on fishing! Guess she will have more time for that once January rolls around.
