A Day Made in (Carolina Blue) Heaven
Sunday, March 04, 2012
Yesterday began somewhat drearily with a cold drizzle early in the gray morning. I had committed to work an aid station for a 1/2 marathon training session. Thankfully, the rain stopped before I left the house. I passed part of the running group as I was headed to the station site. How could I grumble - snug in my sweatshirt and hoodie - about a cold drizzle that they were running 14 miles in?!?!?! I met some great people working the station. In addition to gaining new friends, I also gained inspiration from these dedicated athletes - some of whom were doing this for the first time.
As the day wore on, the gray sky turned to a partly cloudy one. After much hemming and hawing, I went to the Y for my workout. It is almost always difficult to go, but always rewarding once I get there. I left with a sense of accomplishment.
Then came the evening...
and UNC beat dook!!!!
Truly a day made in heaven~
