Tis A Grand Day Indeed

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand. - Irish Blessing

So said Father Tom Miller, on this day when everyone is at least a wee bit Irish, as he recited a prayer before the start of this morning's Shamrock Hill 5K Run.

And as fate would have it, the road did rise up to me us, the wind was at our backs (for the last 1.5 miles), the sun did shine upon our faces, if rain fell, it was far from us and by all accounts, God did hold us in the palm of his hand.

And now that it's done, another great Irish tradition awaits.

Cead Mile Failte!
