Memories: The Shamrock Shuffle 2013
Last Sunday...our family ran the Shamrock Shuffle, or more precisely, Sue and Amy ran....Molly and I cheered from the sidelines...there was the usual pre-race drama--no parking spots available...cash only for the ramps..a rush to get registered...a record number of racers...all in all it was a wonderful rush... But after the race...after all the anxiety of whether one could finish...there was the rush of the finish on a sunny day in Madison...and the line at the Sunprint Cafe, right across from the Brat and Brau...but with a vegetarian menu....and as I sat there and ordered a "Tofu Scramble" and wondered...I heard the guys at the next table talk...just chit chat..one guy, probably a college senior..talked about the crisis in Cyprus, and then mentioned that he had just been to his old high school yesterday...and that "They Were All Gone"....his companion said "HuH?"...."All my old teachers were gone...I guess it was the Walker thing...it was really strange...now there is nothing to go back for"
