Shamrock Shuffle

Greetings fellow Network of Love Lovers!

Yesterday I completed the Shamrock Shuffle, a run in downtown Chicago that ushers in Spring and finishes St. Patrick's Day celebrations for the city. Well...the weather was cold and snowy and windy. Slush puddles squirted around our feet as us runners pounded our way through the streets of Chicago. But it was a blast! I remember, one woman accidentally bumped into me and apologized for doing so. I turned to her and laughed, saying "don't worry, I'm completely numb right now. You could take an ax to my body and I wouldn't feel a thing!" I thought it was very courteous of her to take the time to apologize for accidentally gently running into me (pun intended). People are awfully nice for the most part during runs...I've found the running culture to be especially positive and upbeat in the races I've run. I think I'll do the Shamrock Shuffle next year...even if the weather is as bad as it was this year!

peace and blessings.

with love,

your friend bob : )
