Copper River Bridge Run Nostalgia

This weekend is the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC. When I last did the race, I walked the 6.2 miles with a few friends. That was in 1995.

I have been trying to get back to this race for 15 years, but my job responsibilities interfered and then when I was not working anymore, I was pregnant, between pregnancies or just not physically able to do it.

This year I made a promise to myself that I would do it. Over 38,000 people are participating, and I will be one of them.

In my moment of reminiscing about the past, I found these photos from 15 years ago...

I am on the far right.

About 9,000 people participated in 1995.

Thanks for humoring me.

Just in case you are interested in the history of the race: History of the Bridge


  1. You plan on coming in first, Yes?
    Have a good run, speedy

  2. The joke told by the official announcer before the race: The Kenyans will finish the race before most of you cross the start line! And in fact, a Kenyan won again this year in 27 minutes. I was a little bit behind him at 56 minutes.
