Last weekend was the Oak Barrel Half Marathon which is sponsored by Jack Daniel's Distillery to benefit several local charities.
There were approximately 1,500 runners who participated this year.
The race started on Main Street in front of our house.
Here are a few pictures.

About 1 hour before the start of the run.
Only a few spectators in front of Miss Mary Bobo's.
