This running hot dog mascots GIF makes us smile

Justin McIntosh, Columbus Alive

I've worked about half of all the available hours over the course of this week. I'm tired, grumpy and bloated from all the crappy food I've stuffed down my gullet in a mad rush to stay energized. It all melts away, though, every time I see this radass GIF Alive photographer Meghan Ralston made of me running the outfield (along with two Clippers staffers) of Huntington Park. Hell, I smile every time I see a still picture of the hotdog mascots. But running hotdog mascots? Are you kidding me? What could be better?

Hope this makes your Hump Day a little more awesome. I know it did mine. (And find out why we're photographing anthropomorphic food races in tomorrow's issue.)
