I retired from the Army after 26 years of service in 2010.  I moved home to Arizona.  My wife and I are empty nesters.  In 2016 I had stents placed in my heart after discovering coronary artery disease.  Since early 2016 I have lost 30 lbs and got in much better shape.  August 2017 I retired again and we are going on a mission to Mexico in OCtober 2017.

Nice job, Don. Is this a popular race. I heard about it at their booth at Roadrunner Sports.

there were less than a thousand people for the 5K and 10K combined. They did a really nice job. The band was out on the course playing. It was worth it!

That's pretty good for a high school fund raiser.
