Mother Nature has blessed us with plenty of sunshine lately. You can almost smell the fresh, crisp Spring air. We have so many things to look forward to this month, one of those being St. Patrick’s Day. Things may be done differently this year or folks are finding a way to make the best of the situation. Typically, we would be joining in on parades, festivities and runs. It seems like the runs are still going on this year, but just virtually. I have a new appreciation for the things that we can do virtually that we never thought were possible. Check out these virtual and in person runs and be apart of the St. Patrick’s festivities after all.
