Despite the thunderstorms that rolled through South Walton on Friday and Saturday, Sunday was the perfect race day. Blue skies, shining sun, and cool temperature made for perfect race conditions. Local photographer, Shelly Swanger, captured this photo of the 2012 Seaside Half Marathon winner, Paul Epstein, owner of Running Wild, as he was approaching the finish line. Congratulations to everyone who entered the races and in the process, supported the Seaside Neighborhood School. Running is a great way to Explore 30A & Sowal! Special shout out to The Premier Property Group‘s Matt McGuire for finishing in the top 5%. We’d also like to thank the numerous sponsors, especially Vera Bradley, 30A.com, Jim n’ Nicks, & Grayton Beer.
