Trot for Tots

“What is passion? It is surely the becoming of a person…In passion, the body and the spirit seek expression… the more extreme and the more expressed that passion is, the more unbearable does life seem without it. It reminds us that if passion dies or is denied, we are partly dead and that soon, come what may, we will be wholly so.”
– John Boorman, Film Director.


The excitement of the previous night’s victory was shorted lived as anxiety for Saturday morning’s race set it. At  5:00 am my alarm started buzzing signaling the start of the day. Bright and early, as the dew was still drying from the grass, I was in the middle of the road’s chalking the race course.  Pretty much from that point on, the day was a blur of setting up, playing traffic controller, answering questions, and praying for success.

Check-in Line

Starting Line

Before I knew it, it was 2:00 pm and people…lots of people… were lined up at the starting line. As I counted off “1,2,3 For the Kids!” to signal the start of the 5k, the participants took off and I knew I had successful pulled off the race!

The 2010 Trot for Tots 5k had over 260 participants and raised over $2000.00! Everyone seemed to have a ton of fun.  I could not have asked for it to go any better.

I wanted to thank everyone who registered for the race, offered help, and kept me sane throughout the entire event!
