Run to Feed the Hungry Tips

Run to Feed the Hungry Tips

Be warned, fun runners. The storm that blew through Sacramento last weekend brought down an epic amount of leaves. Since you probably already know that Thursdays are trash day in East Sacramento, street parking will not only be impacted by the 2 to 3 cans at the curb, but also piles of leaves the height of a toddler.  If I were you, I'd park at Sac State.  But that's probably a cluster and a half too.

As of this writing, it's supposed to rain, which I assume means some of you will be passing on the holiday tradition of running through my neighborhood in the freezing cold. If it doesn't rain, you will be treated to a beautiful sight. The leaves that are left in the trees are in full color.

An East Sacramento Thanksgiving Tradition

An East Sacramento Thanksgiving Tradition

It happens every year and it's going to happen again this year. Tens of thousands of people will descend on East Sacramento on Thanksgiving morning. Yep, it's Run to Feed the Hungry time again.

While this event annoys me on some levels, overall I kind of like it. It's bizarre to see so many people walking down the street. Most of them are in a good mood, clutching their red Starbucks cups, wearing funny hats, and pushing strollers adorned with balloons and ribbons. They almost always move in groups.  Chatting about the mundane, but enjoying the colorful view while they do it.

There are a few actual runners. They are near the front and in the minority. Aside from something to do before having to interact with various members of their extended family, I think most people just do it for the t-shirt. No?

One Body, Two Worlds by Natachi Mez

One Body, Two Worlds by Natachi Mez

I’ve never really walked through the mind of someone other than myself. I’ve attempted it, but then again, how could I be accurate? I don’t know what makes me different from every other girl in the world, but I know the factors that multiply to equal me.

I remember, when I was a lot younger, I wanted a more common name. How many people do you know with the name “Natachi?” I wanted the straight, flowing hair. I wanted the hourglass. As I continue to evolve into a young lady, I embrace my culture. I love my name, which means “from god.” I embrace my hair, and I appreciate everything I have because without them, who would I be?

It’s funny sometimes, looking back. Thinking of all of the ridiculous things that ran through my mind and straight out of my mouth.
