5K #2, January 12, 2013: Mississippi, Biloxi

The 2013 Frosty Kroc 5K Run, January 12

It is a gulf coast running weekend with a Friday flight from Dallas to Mobile in time to drive to Biloxi for pre-run dinner at a great iconic southern restaurant, Mary Mahoney's Old French House.

We were here in 2000 and 2010.

Pre-5K Dinner

In the morning, the Mascot Race kicks off the day. Out of the fog came three mascots.

Warming up before the 5k on the track behind the beautiful Kroc Center in Biloxi.

The run though is on the streets in the neighborhood.
See if you can find Waldo at the start.

3.1 miles later at the finish

First in my age group (just three other gentlemen over 60 running) and 13th overall out of about 70 runners.

Two states completed, and three more scheduled in January.

Sunday -- a half marathon (my first) in Gulf Shores Alabama.
