Racing and running and being lapped by ten year olds
Jen and I had a race last weekend, a simple little 5k job. The looks of elation on our faces are for different reasons. Jen, because she placed fourth and mine because I finished period. I had to walk for a little while because my back was acting up and I was lapped by a ten year old. Embarrassing, but I shrugged it off enough to take a picture with my medal for finishing. Yes, they gave a medal for everyone who finished. I am not above taking some pride in that. The number I am flashing is 24, where I placed. I am not sure there were many more people than that in the race, aside from the infirmed.
