A parade jog

I spent the afternoon helping out the Greg Gasper for Asssembly campaign hand out candy and literature at the Gemuetlichkeit Days parade in Jefferson. This was the first time I've ever helped out in a parade, and I was struck by one thing-there is more light jogging and fast walking involved than I anticipated. As you spend time alongside the crowd, handing out candy and pamphlets, your unit seems to take off without you. I have to give credit to candidates like Gasper who try to meet and greet as many people as possible along the way. Doing so without seeming like you are rushing yet keeping up with the parade must be difficult and tiring.
