May 16, 2009

There is nothing quite as rude as being awakened by an alarm clock at 5:00 AM unless it's being told you are pretty nice, for a fat guy. But, like a good soldier, I showed at 6:30 AM on the dot for my 6K run assignment. Then again, just in case you have been deluded into believing that I was one of the runners; just remember:
I would rather show up at 3 AM than try that. . . .there was a time, but that was light years ago. Stay on track, Tom. The race was a success with a gentleman from Africa taking first place and breaking a previously held record here in Chickasaw.
We (Kiwanis) gave out many Freedom Tee-shirts and of course, engraved awards
for the winners in each category. Red beans and rice, pizza, beer and water were
served afterward so everyone could "carb-up".
I spent the rest of the afternoon washing the SUV, going to Lowes for pine straw and cypress chips then coming home and dutifully cooking dinner for my bride.

  1. You are a good citizen, Tom. We are so lucky to have you -- whether you can run or not!
