Today, was the 2nd Annual Alexander’s Run. Though the weather forecast predicated rain and a mix of snow, we decided to have the fun anyway. We had no idea how many, if any, runners would show up on race morning. Some people didn’t make it but Dan and I were truly surprised, overwhelmed, and grateful for all the support we received at this morning’s event.
The tents we’d arranged for didn’t arrive on time but no one complained as we had to scramble for tents. The runners were patient as we opened registration late. The kids who did come in costumes were cheerful as they stood under the tents and grooved to the music of Alex Mitnick. It was an amazing day and I’m so glad we continue to celebrate Alexander and the other SUDC children with this run.
I am nearing the end of my training for the Philadelphia Half Marathon, so I appreciated the opportunity to run 5K in such…ahem, challenging conditions – I actually had an easier time running 10 MILES yesterday! It was a lot of fun, and a very well-conceived course; really shows off the best of Trenton! Also, I don’t think anyone fatter than me beat me to the finish line, so it was a win! I look forward to this event growing with each passing year.
Ryan and I would have come out no matter the conditions!!! I look forward to next year.
