it was still pretty dark at 7:45 a.m. when the gun went off. everyone was happy to start because it was 35 degrees with a little snow.
in the front, they zoomed over the starting line, but in the back the crowd made everyone walk for a while. then it was time to set the pace.
the race leaves downtown by the road along the river, and
soon there was a moody view of cincinnati.
in a few weeks these bushes will be green again, and you won't be able to see the river from the road.
there were bands, but not many spectators. it was cold!
this run your little heart out! sign had a caveat in the corner but not really.
my teen liked this picture - the pole in the middle makes it geometric.
the mercy health heart mini 9 miles is over. (the half marathon, 10k, and 5k, too.)
may the luck of the irish bring you joy and
all roads lead you home.
