Hot Dog!

What makes a runner? Is it the rush of adrenalin when the final lap is in sight? The cool air on your face? The feeling of accomplishment when it is over? The anticipation to do it all over again the next day? What is it that makes runners hungry for more?

For me, you can say all of the above … on occasion. But this past weekend, when I ran in the Robert P. Giamo 5 K race in Fairfield, what kept our little foursome going (besides the story telling) were the bagels and hot dogs immediately following the race!

SEE - There it is - delicious hot dog right in my hand!!! Mmmm – I can still remember its good taste – especially at 11 a.m. Makes it all that running worth it.

I have to say that it was the bagels, not the hot dogs, that kept me running toward the finish line! And of course you not letting me stop to walk even though I wanted to!
