Reflections from the 5K
By Joel Kiekbusch, Race Coordinator
Joel has been a high school teacher at Eastview since 1998 and he and his wife have a strong sense of duty to the five 196 warriors.
After having to settle for a “virtual” event for the evolution of the Eight Annual Warrior 196 Memorial 5K, planning and anticipating the Ninth Annual Warrior 196 Memorial 5K event was a combination of excitement and apprehension: excitement for having the event back outside…for real…with actual people running, walking, and rucking a real course, and apprehension that folks would show up, that a pandemic uptick wouldn’t push us back into our homes, and that we could have a successful event after what really was a year of hiatus.
This blog highlights posts from various members of the Warrior 196 community.
