Memphis Stars & Stripes 5K Run

Neil Earle crosses finish line as sun sets in Memphis.

Another 5k walk – more than 1400 people ran or walked on the night of July 3 in the sweltering heat.

Not recommended actually – but grand to be with 1500 people at Memphis' famed Botanical Gardens.

Something about exerting in a good cause, in this case the Red Cross – I was 9 out of 9 in my age group 70-74 but still worth doing.
