Last weekend my husband and I participated in the St Patty’s Day Dash.
15,000 Seattleites used to going through 4 seasons in one day were not discouraged by the snow! It was really like a carnival, everyone in crazy costumes (I guess we didn’t get the memo on the costume contest), and their kegs on their shoulders, gathered behind the start line.
As we crossed the Start line, everyone screaming and the bagpipes cheering us on, I felt so inspired. The energy created by all of us running in unison was such a strong feeling! With this encouragement we first ran up the hill on Hwy 99 to the bridge and back down toward EMP! Talk about hard on the knees!… But when we saw the Finish Line, we forgot about the pain and the rain and the cold, and celebrated our achievement!
See you next year… snow, rain or shine!
