OKC Veterans' Day Run to the Capitol 2012

This year the run started a VA Hospital instead of the Skyline Cafe. The turnout was sparse compared to the same run in 2011. I'm not sure if it was rainy cold weather, lack of publicity, or confusion on which day, the holiday on Sunday the 11th or the observed holiday of Monday the 12th. It does really matter to me I do this run every time I possibly can. I even had a little incident earlier in the day that couldn't stop me.

Up to the Veterans' Memorial at the Capitol complex.
