Park, Rux Go 1-2 at TWRC Sunday Night 5K

We interrupt our regular order of results reporting to put a smile on your face this Saturday morning!

If this picture doesn't incorporate a bit of "foolishness", we're not sure what does!

No teeth were broken at the completion of the race!

Of course, our own Bill Dwyer does a great job - and has been doing so since the summer of 2009, but one of the things that he does is to give kids that come out and participate a medal to congratulate them and to encourage them to continue to run.

Jerritt Park and George Rux were the only two runners that came out the day after The Woodlands Marathon.  (The Sunday Night 5K is always on the first Sunday of every month.)

There was some joking among the Friends of the Running Community while these two gents were on the course that we could have some future fun by betting on the over/under of any two runners in a race.

Gauging how we thought they would run, we set the time difference at 11 minutes.

One chose above; the other below.

If the over/under is actually met, in Vegas, it is a push.  The house - betting establishment - wins as nobody gets their bet paid off.

And that's what exactly happened this Sunday night.

Jerritt came across the finish line in the Barbara Bush Elementary parking lot in 22:29.

And George, unbeknownst what had been discussed, finished right at 32:29.

Eleven minutes difference on the nose.

The next Sunday Night 5K is Sunday, April 3, 2022 at 6:00 p.m.
