Rise and Shine
I woke up at 5 a.m. to work at the Frozen five K and half marathon in downtown St. Paul, a traditional volunteer event I participate in each year. Having consumed just 2 hours of sleep, because I work at a bar on the weekends, I wasn't the happiest camper. Needless to say once I got there I grabbed a cup of joe and woke up to the faces of eager runners ready to go! Throughout the day as the racers crossed the finish-line, my tiredness seemed to disappear, taking in the excitment and sense of great accomplishment and fulfillment lingering in the air from runners finishing the race.
time: 5:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
cost: $1.00 for coffee, the rest was all free!
mood: tired, cheerful, fulfilled
