things to do in jackson ms: A Personal First.... My First 5K! - 03/19/17 05:31 AM
Exercise has never been particularly compelling to me. I was fortunate to inherit good genes and a healthy metabolism. But as we age, metabolism slows, and Father Time introduces us to a few aches and pains we have never experienced. I wasn't ready to slow down.
 
A few months ago, I started making small changes. I became more aware of what I ate and made healthier choices, plus I began walking. Yesterday, I completed my FIRST 5K during the Hal's St. Paddy's Day Parade in downtown Jackson! The weather was perfect, and because the scenery was beautiful, I captured a few photos along the way. 
Our state's capital … (14 comments)

The third weekend in March is an important time for activities in downtown Jackson, MS and the metro area. It's the date when Sweet Potato Queens from all over the country converge on the capitol city and march in conjunction with the St. Paddy's Day Parade.
