New Year’s Day Recap

Our annual New Year’s Day 5k, the World Race for Hope Troy, took place at First Place Christian Center in downtown Troy this morning. While we weren’t fortunate enough to have the above normal temperatures that persisted throughout December, it wasn’t as cold as it has been in the past, and we were really thankful that the flood waters of the Great Miami River receded enough for our course to be clear. There were some highlights and features that have occurred in recent years, such as the cookie medals as age group awards, the pancake breakfast by the Troy FUMC youth, and a repeat (or perhaps a six-peat) for our overall winner. There was also a new aspect of the race, a live stream of the start and finish on YouTube (the video is long but you can jump ahead to find a specific finish according the clock.)  Thank you Take 2 Productions for arranging the video stream!
