Wednesday night's race was the 22nd Annual Water Walk and Run, celebrating National Drinking Water Week, sponsored by Golden Heart Utilities. The out-and-back 5Km course ran on the bike path along the river west from the water plant. The temperature was in the high 40's to low 50's -- the warmest day for a running race so far this "spring."
