It is hard to believe that both the 2014 Jamboree in the Hills and the Italian Festival have come and gone. Although I did not attend either event this year, I did my usual "drive by" of the Jamboree site on Friday and Saturday. As tradition in the Ohio Valley continues, the 17th Annual Debbie Green 5K will take place tomorrow, August 2. Voted as one of the top 263 road races in the world, the downtown Wheeling route is quite a challenge for all ages.
Each person competes in their own age group and since life is always moving forward, I am moving up to another age group. Moving up an age group may make me feel bad (but not old!), but knowing I am doing something that many people years younger than I would not attempt, makes me quite pleased with myself! I enjoy watching the faces of some people when I say I am going to walk a 5K! Some are shocked at this senior citizen doing something so ambitious, but all are supportive.
