Why I Keep Coming Back

Why I Keep Coming Backby Ferguson Twilight Run Planning Committee Member Meghan Mueller

I keep running the Ferguson Twilight Run because both runners and spectators provide an upbeat, fun race. As you wind through tree-lined neighborhoods, many residents wave, clap, and high five you as you pass. Some residents even post motivational signs or leave free bottles of water at the curb. The race also offers many cheer stations where volunteers tell you what an awesome job you are doing at completing the race. Runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels take part, but it feels like everyone is in it together.
