Saturday was the Des Moines University Run-Day-Voo, a 5k run/walk for students, alumni, staff and friends. Lisa Vroegh and I, from the Enrollment office, decided to participate in the event this year. As walkers. We don’t run.
Despite being toward the end of the pack, we had a great time. It was wonderful to see more than 270 members of the DMU community participating in such a fun event together. The course took us south of the University into beautiful neighborhoods full of challenging hills. Along the way, students were there to guide us and provide us with encouragement. Afterward, D.O. and D.P.T. students were on hand to provide free OMM and stretching treatments.
Even though being on campus at 7:30 a.m. on a Saturday was a bit tough, this is definitely something I’ll do again in the future!
