Last Saturday, 34 runners and walkers of all ages participated in the Libby Turkey Dash 5k fun run/walk benefiting the Libby Food Pantry and Libby Pregnancy Care Center, and sponsored by various local businesses and organization.

Jack Lampton, the first across the finish line, has been participating in the run since he was around three years old, said Debroah Lampton. Back then, she pushed him in a stroller.

“Apparently he’s become a runner now, so he wanted to run the whole thing,” she said at the finish line.

Jack admitted he enjoys running, and said his favorite part is the middle.

“You know that you’ve already run a long ways and you’re already tired,” he said. Yet, he enjoys the feeling of knowing he still has further to go.
