John Wright, Democratic candidate for the 47th District Missouri House of Representatives seat, waves at other runners Oct. 12 on the MKT Nature and Fitness Trail. Wright often runs on the trail, which has an entrance near his parent's Columbia home. He said he spent a lot of time on the trail while growing up in Columbia and often runs after spending time at MU, where he guest lectures in a business class that he helped design. He is unable to teach the class since he is running in the election.
