Volunteering in a year-round capacity with an organization like TCM shows just how many volunteers it takes to host a successful event - and although we usually stay in our previously-determined volunteer roles, sometimes we pitch in as needed at other areas. Today, for just a few minutes, I got to scoop conversation hearts!
The high is supposed to be 34 today and I had to sternly make myself dress for much colder weather so I could stand outside comfortably all morning. When I got there, I felt the fierce breeze coming off the lake and I was really grateful for my extra layers (and a few packets of handwarmers). Of course, there were still runners in shorts and singlets. Minnesota!
After the race, I stopped at the grocery store to get chocolate chips and the library to pick up some books I had reserved, so I am well-equipped for whatever weather comes my way tomorrow. (It might snow a lot.)
There were lots of dogs in the race today, but Wish was definitely not one of them, so it's time to take him out for a walk. Happy Saturday to you!
