I woke up at 5:30am on a Saturday. Voluntarily. Today was Goldy’s Run, a 10 mile course along the Mississippi River on East River Road and West River Parkway with a finish in the Minnesota Gophers TCF Bank Stadium.
While snacking on Nutella on bread, I did some stretching and had a little dance off to Good Feeling by Flo Rida. Thou would think I was auditioning for a Will Ferrell movie on dancing. Thou might even have been awestruck by my arm flailing. But Thou weren’t there.
It was a beautiful day for a run, and I finished in good time. Of the couple thousand people there, I didn’t find my two college friends who ran the 5K, but surprisingly ran into a friend from work and we celebrated with a stop at BW3’s at 10:30am.
In the afternoon, I helped and learned how to install fiberglass insulation in my buddy’s garage in Shakopee. In case you are wondering, I actually did work, but did stop for two minutes to take photos. The night ended in Uptown visiting with five college friends, some of whom I hadn’t seen in nearly nine years. What a day it’s been!
