I am not a morning person and I knew that my greatest weakness once I started working was going to be the laborer’s waking hour. Though I must admit, the laborer’s sleep is SWEET, I should know…I know my sleep.

My first thought while getting up last Saturday (2th of May) was ‘I’ve barely slept a wink!’ which was quickly followed ‘I am tired to the bone’ and just behind that thought was a plea to God which went something like this ‘…Dear God, its Saturday and I am up even before the Cocks start crowing…whhhhyyyy? (imagine listening to ‘FORGET YOU‘ by  Cee Lo Green for the ‘whhhhyyy?!). My final thought before tumbling out of my bed and heading for the shower was ‘…in the end it will all be worth it and my sleep later on tonight will be sweeter than honey because I will have participated in a worthwhile cause.’

So on my way to Nyayo stadium an hour later I couldn’t help but notice that the roads to the sport complex were painted Green…not literally of course  but there were throngs of people in the trademark color for this Charity event that I was headed to…the Mater Heart Run.

I would love to go on giving you an account of how my day was…but then again what would be the purpose of the pictures I took on that material day? Below are the moments I was able to freeze in time before duty called…enjoy 🙂
