2008 Truman Run

Leigh Anne ran in her first 5K of 2008 by participating in the Truman 5K Run on May 10, 2008.  The race course runs around the historic neighborhoods of Independence Missouri.   The day was overcast, but comfortable compared to the relative cool of the Zoo Run and the heat of the Love Fund Run.  Leigh Anne did very well, running the course in 28:32 with an average mile time of 9:12.  She placed 115 overall and was awarded second place for her age group.  This was her first race that she placed.
