P1500364On Sunday, June 2, weeks of preparation came to a head as 58 runners and walkers gathered at 6301 Sligo Parkway and awaited the sound of the starting gun that would signal that the Metropolitan 40th Anniversary 5k Run/Walk was underway (ok - there was no gun, but that sounded good!).  We had husbands and wives, a father-mother-daughter team and siblings participate.  We had a couple of runners who decided that the day was too beautiful to just run a 5k, and so they increased their distance to 10k.  Enjoy the pictures below - courtesy Claudette Smith.  Here's the list of winners by age category, and here's the list of all runners and finish times (courtesy race timer extraordinaire - Vaughn Andrews).
