The Pattersons made it a family affair today when twins Erin & Lindsey took to the streets alonside their dad for the One-Mile Fun Run. Both girls finished strong with Erin coming in at 9:45 and Lindsey at 10:15.
Great Job, Pattersons!

Way to go, Eric! His wife Leigh took pictures at the start, again at mile 5 and again near mile 11. Thanks, Leigh!
Whitney is an avid runner who lives in Elkmont. She volunteered and was calling splits during the race while her daughter, Chloe, took pictures.
