ARNOLD 5K PUMP & RUN Columbus, Ohio

Running Team: Dave Miller, Holly Miller, Rosie Miller

Race Date: March 4, 2012

This annual running race is part of the Arnold Sports Festival, which draws 22,000 participants from 80 countries who compete in over 80 sports including body building. The race began outside of the Expo Center and took us throughout downtown and along the Scioto River.  It was a chilly 45 degree morning but lots of fun. Arnold Schwarzenegger himself greeted everyone, did the countdown and shot the gun to begin the race. Arnold was standing in the middle of the road in front of the runners and did not move after he shot the gun.  Luckily, several race officials dragged him to the side just in time or he would have been run over by the runners. After the race, we enjoyed attending the huge sports expo, getting lots of free giveaways at the booths and meeting former Mr. Universe Lou “The Hulk” Ferrigno.
