I’ll Share Me Day With You But Not Me Pot O’ Gold

by altardy on March 29, 2010

One thing about the Holyoke St. Patty’s Day Race is that it has a large number of volunteers that endure many variates of weather, because, it is in the middle of March in New England. As I have written about in the past, without the volunteers you and I would not have races to run. This year I met (l-r) Jason, Christie, Paul and Beverly as soon as I got there. On cold race days the building you see them in is like a refrigerator. This year with record high temps–not quite so bad. But they always have a smile and make race day as nice of a day for the runners as possible.

Then there was a visit from one of the wee people. I caught this picture of a leprechaun early and kept checking to see if there happened to be a pot of gold around. But I had to settle for a couple buckets of carbs instead, which was ok, too.

It’s the smiles and the people that go the extra mile(sorry about the pun) that make these days memorable and we should all thank them for their efforts. THANK YOU
