We are at the Fat Ass 5K & Street Party for Charity and the most exciting happening is....
"Free hot dogs! Free hot dogs! Reach out and catch them!!!"
Hot dogs in buns, wrapped in foil, were placed in the above contraption and shot into the air.
People, all lined up in the middle of the street, waited for the hot dogs to land in their hands. After several rounds of shooting the dogs towards the participants and after singing the national anthem, the racers stepped out.
Not everyone ran or walked, some peddled the pub instead.
At every corner of the streets, there was some form of entertainment such as a band, a solo singer, even Elvis Himselvis.
And then the skies opened up and the rain started pouring. But that did not deter the enthusiastic participants. They continued walking and running. I instead, found refuge under the awning of a building. But not just any building. I found the best spot to hang out and watch the people.
If you have been trying to figure out why all the participants are looking up and trying to reach for something, let me help you out. This particular spot, the perfect spot that I found to take cover, is the area where doughnut holes are being tossed out to the runners. We all know that doughnuts, especially doughnut holes are the sustenance for all athletes. OK maybe not all athletes, maybe just the fat ass ones.😉
And so this concludes this year's Fat Ass 5K run. It was a fun time even though it rained and I know I will probably be back again next year.🏃♀️🏃♂️
