"Flight to the Finish"

Janis won overall first place among walkers in spite of having to stop and tie a shoe. For people who might see this picture and not be into 5k events, I should point out that serious walkers are far faster than many runners. Even though the starting gun for walkers today was a minute or two after the one for runners, Janis passed me within the first half mile -- maybe third of a mile. (I enter races as a runner because I run off and on. Runners can walk as much as they want to, but walkers aren't allowed to run at all.) St. Richard's "Flight to the Finish" 5k walk/run. Jackson, Mississippi.
