But as runners we all have something in common with politicians.
We run for our health and happiness.
They run for political office.
We race 5ks, 10ks and marathons.
They race against each other for positions of power.
REMEMBER - We decide who wins the race!
So...did you get out and VOTE today?
I try to vote for the most compassionate candidates. Those that stand up for human rights and believe in peaceful resolution and the progress of our nation as a whole.
I think I did okay. :)
Here are just a few votes you'll find on my ballot:
* Jerry Brown
* Barbara Boxer
* Kamala Harris
* "Yes" on Proposition 19
* "No" on Proposition 23
I thought I would include some of my favorite signs from Jon Stewart's 'Rally to Restore Sanity (and/or Fear)'. I wish I could have been there.
