It has been a long time since I posted last, perhaps that is because Run For Good has been swamped with work, which is a good thing! But, just this morning I was feeling anxious, about our upcoming brand new event that needs more participants, or perhaps because of my meeting today with a major sponsor. Anyhow, I forced myself out the door for a run, something I have been very very lax on lately.
My knee has been grumpy the last several months and it has been a frustrating process. As I first started out I was tired, my knee was screaming at me, I was forced to walk way more than I wanted to. I was unhappy.
Then, like a mirage, coming toward me, a woman, whom I have never seen before, running, wearing one of our race shirts! It was our Good Karma shirt from the first year of that race. I smiled, briefly considered trying to take her picture with my phone (thought better of that one) and moved along, beaming.
I cannot believe this is the first time this has happened to me. Other people have reported spotting our race shirts on strangers, but never have I seen it with my own two eyes.
I now know I have made it as a race director. It put a whole new spin on my day! Goes to show that you never know what the smallest act will do to another person's day. I bet you she has no idea!
