I had never done a 5K fun run before today, and I certainly can’t think why! It was so fun, so low-key, and so … small! It was a simple affair put on by a family to raise money for their father’s cancer treatments. Registration was by donation, and the crowd was mostly family, friends and co-workers of the sick man’s son. But there were a few of us who didn’t know the family, and just wanted to run (the fundraising bit was a bonus). We made our own little knot around the breakfast bagels, and lo and behold – there was a woman next to me in a blue feather-and-fan hat …
Excuse me, I said. Did you make your hat?
Why, yes! She glanced up and down at me. Her eyes narrowed and she smiled. Did you make your headband?
Knitters are everywhere!
