A Dream Come True

Yesterday I was able to fulfill a dream that I have had since I was a little kid. I was able to run out onto the field at Notre Dame Stadium from the tunnel. Granted to do that I had to run 3 miles before the tunnel. I entered the Sunburst 5k for the sole purpose of being able to run out onto that field. As a kid I always thought that it would be as a player, but as it turns out Notre Dame does not recruit kids that are short and slow. Who knew? So I had to wait until I was 31 to enjoy the moment. I came out of the tunnel with my fist pumping. I must have looked like a little kid. They had four people taking pictures so hopefully one of them came out good. If it did I will post it on here at a later date. As far as the race went I ran faster than I ever have before. I ran the race 1:24 faster then my personal best. That is not too shabby. I would think that the goal of hitting the end in the stadium helped keep my adrenaline high the whole race.
Here are some of the names that I ran with: Derrick Lee, George Carlin, Matt Morris, Matt Yocum, Ted Williams, Me Whake (which shows up in the results as Whake, Me), Dan O’Conner, Kevin Kaiser, and Tom Jones. Either I was with some real famous people, or people with the same names as some famous people.
