"Just living is not enough, one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."

The Sunburst took place today downtown. For years now we've watched as the streets around our home get cordoned off for the athletes. This year we registered to run a 5k, but because of two pinched nerves in my back, I just wasn't able to properly train, we downsized to a 5k walk. Now before you think that I wimped out, I was really stepping out aggressively. We finished our 5k in 49 minutes, but because we walked to the Hall of Famewhere the races began, and from thestadium where the races finished, it was almost a 10k.
The weather couldn't have been nicer. It was a wonderful day. I am very satisfied. And I have a new pillow which should help me sleep better. Yeah!
