Anyone, of a certain age remembers Carly Simon’s song Anticipation or the commercial version for Heinz Ketchup commercials. ¬†Well that song is running wildly through my brain right now as I prepare for one of my favorite road races this weekend. The Pell Bridge Run (the budge depicted on Rhode Island’s quarter). This is one of the most unique races around; first it is four miles, secondly 90% of it takes place on a bridge, thirdly it starts at 6:15am! What an incredible view as you run eastward toward Newport from Jamestown the sun rising over the historic city. This run is full of beautiful imagery and is pure enchainment.

So Anticipation you’re making me wait. Count down three days and counting!

Any races you have this same affection and level of excitement for? Then please share!
