Finally, dress up time...
And if that wasn't enough entertainment for one week the cross country team also volunteered at our local Twin Cities Marathon. It was a chilly start at 9AM when we arrived but by 12:30PM it was warm and sunny. I thoroughly enjoyed EVERY MINUTE of this day. I was pumped up to get in shape again, start running maybe, and simply eat better.

As we were leaving I was definitely feeling hungry. The Piper Jaffrey group that sponsored Mile 24 water station/powerade was more than generous with the spread of bagels, granola bars, fruit, candy, coffee, and water of course. I needed something and I chose an apple and nectarine. I KNOW RIGHT??? WHO AM I????
Since, when do I NOT pick the candy??
I guess the runners did a number on my head like I said.
Sadly, it lasted for only about an hour. By the time we got home I was craving sugar and didn't stop until I got. (Bad grammar but oh so true!)
And lastly.....no huge disruptions by Black Lives Matter group. There was a smallish protest going on but they listened to the warnings from the authorities and DID NOT intervene with the marathon at all.
All were safe!
All lives matter!
