Fit To Ride
Awareness of the outside world. “A portion of all proceeds from this event will go to ‘Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana’.” Medal Dash: ‘A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS’ 5K, Description.
(Medal photo pending. Having trouble with sun. No complaints. Been gray and ick all week. Yay for sun!)
This 5K was of the buy-a-medal, do-as-you-will variety. I have decided that I prefer the vicarious travel aspect of having my virtual walks tied to an IRL location, i.e. zoo fundraisers, marathons etc. However, this was last minute. Take what I can get.
… muddy … need a paved place for my daily mile … haven’t done a official walk here … hmm, the total trail is 2.6 miles … that’s close to 3.1 … I smell a 5K …
A quick Internet search and I was signed up for this.
I get the mental satisfaction of finishing a 5K. I get a medal. I get a seasonal blog post. Most importantly, I get the impetus to continue wandering around the shopping mall parking lot for half a mile to finish the 5K.
“Broke many of the rules prevalent for animated holiday specials during the 1960s: it didn’t make use of a laugh track; real children were used for the character voices instead of adult actors imitating children’s voices; and Biblical references were used to illustrate the true meaning of Christmas.” IMDB: A Charlie Brown Christmas, Trivia
Stay safe. Stay sane.
