One of our favorite 5Ks for a number of years was the Terrapin 5K, a Grateful Dead-themed race. They always had great swag, good music, and ok food (or “Munchies” as the bib tag always said). And then a couple of years ago RAM Racing stopped doing them. But this year with the Dead doing their last shows ever in Chicago, RAM brought back the race for one last time as well.
Erica brought back her Bob Weir outfit for the race, something of a tradition, and this year amped up the Bobby-ness of it so that people would stop yelling “Jerry” at her. And our friend Amy, who was going to see all three Dead shows, ran her first 5K ever.
