Chase the Chief

Last weekend, an unplanned assignment fell into my lap on short notice.  The occasion was “Chase the Chief,” a series of activities culminating in a fun run and a 5K race, all held at East View High School in Georgetown, Texas.  The “chief” is Georgetown Chief of Police Wayne Nero.   You can see him running in full uniform in one of these photos.  The proceeds from  this event, which attracted 1700 participants on a slightly-wet Sunday afternoon (thankfully, past rains held off), raises money for the athletic departments at Georgetown schools.   Naturally, a lot of kids took part.   My favorite moments are at the top of this post, a fellow carrying an American flag in the 5K race.  Joining him for the race (at the right in the opening shot)  was his 7-year-old daughter, who took a turn or two at toting that flag.  Dad was there to lend a hand as needed, but the little girl did her part!   These photos were taken for my friends at the Williamson County Sun.
