What Was I Thinking?????? OH…Now I Get It

by altardy on October 12, 2010

I traveled 2 1/2 hours in my truck to go to the October 10th running of the Great Island 5k in New Castle, N.H.. I left my house at 5:30 a.m. because I like to be at least 1 1/2 hours early to the races I go to run. Being mid October at 6:30 I was only slightly over 1/3 of the way there and the sun had yet to rise. I don’t question what I do in the running field very often—but—I was wondering about this decision. EVEN THE SUN WAS STILL SLEEPING.
All it took was arriving, getting out of my truck and looking around at the beautiful setting. I immediately knew I was glad I had come. And meeting the people you will see in the 3 entries after this one will show you why you should have been there, too .
1339 people, besides me, came to enjoy the day and I’m sure we were all glad we had made the right choice. What a great way to get away for the day.
Check out these pictures, read these stories, and experience this race. Then place for yourself here next year.
