Chad and I were talking about going to the city of Hamlet in Richmond County in October to run in the Seaboard Festival 5-Miler, when Chad mentioned, memories from olden days returning to his head, "I actually ran that race a few years ago." Bonus! Since he's already run a race in Richmond County, we added that to the countdown, and that brings our county total to 62!
Of course, the Seaboard Festival, a celebration of Hamlet's heritage in the railroad industry, has been around for many years and has a great reputation, and I wouldn't be surprised if we put in an appearance there in the future. But it was a great surprise and bonus to discover we could take another county off the board!
