I had some free time yesterday, and some stimulus, so I wrote this little story.
When the call came, of course, I said I would help. After more than a year of being cooped up inside and limited human contact, the ability to not only get outside but actually have some human connection, even if it was behind a mask and socially distant. They canceled the race last year, one of the first of many events that fell victim to COVID-19, but it was not the last. With more vaccines and a better understanding of what could and could not be done during these times, more activities spun back up, and more people came out to help.
