I’ve loved and feared airplanes my entire life, the fear flowing from a solid 20-year run of having plane crash dreams. I haven’t had (or remembered) a dream like that in many, many years. So maybe I’m free from the fear.
The love? It’s still there, strong as ever.
But if you’d have ever told me that I’d be ON an active runway, with planes taking off and landing right next to me, I’d have laughed! Yet that’s precisely what I was able to do by participating in Runway 5K at Asheville Regional Airport in October 2022.
I’m not a runner, although I do want to try Couch to 5K someday soon. So I came in close to last place in the race, which was a-okay by me! I was there to see the planes.
Here are a few images and a video from the event, and a link to a full photo gallery, including more videos!
Maybe next year, I’ll be able to RUN the event!
The real stars of the event were all of the airplanes taking off and landing during the event!
Like this one!
Here’s a gallery of photos and a few more videos from the event.
P.S. I’d love it if you’d take a moment to comment so I know you’ve been here!
