Louisiana Skeeter Run 2013 in Shreveport: SWAT Teams Stamping Out Malaria
Skeeter is short for mis-skeeter which is southern vernacular for mosquito which carries malaria which will be helped to be stamped out by funds raised by SKEETER 5Ks all over Louisiana today.
Today is also Texas Independence day.

24 minutes and 50 seconds, maybe about 15th overall, but first in my age group and awarded a commemorative dog tag.
Runs Completed (Blue). Scheduled for March and April (Red).
