I competed in the 3rd annual Turtle Trek 5 km Race again this year! It was another fun event filled with celebrating the work of the sea turtle hospital at the South Carolina Aquarium. Craig, one of our EBSP volunteers, also raced! It was his very first 5km. He did a great job by placing 9th in his age group. See below for some before and after pictures. I have also included my race certificate. I placed 4th in my age group, just missing out on a prize! Each year I have gotten faster and faster so I plan to get in the top three next year!
Thanks for those who supported the aquarium through my donation page. The turtles thank you!
