Exciting Things! Follow-up
One week ago today was a big day for my little town. Dean Karnazes stopped here on his Run Across America with his team to host a 5K run. There was alot of excitement. For almost 2 months plans and preparations were made. The Garden Club and some of the High School kids even worked uptown during the week prior to the run to make the town look it's best. Although we are in our "rainy and windy" season, the day was sunny and calm. The run started at the Grade School, and all of the students from the three schools were present. I took the day off and went early. Everything went well. There was lots of TV cameras filming every angle of the event. The next day there was a wonderful write-up on the Run Across America website. We were told the actual clip would be on Live! with Regis and Kelly on Monday. Everyone set their VCRs/DVRs--and nothing. It was never on. They skipped right to Indianapolis. There was lot of disappointed people. And to be honest, I'm a little pissed about it!
