This year was fun. My bestests 2nd run. Rain. Of course. I saddled up with my sisters family this time. Just before leaving the house, it was monsooning (raining really hard?). I have said it before and I will say it again. If you let the rain stop you around here, you'll never go anywhere. It was nice to be dropped off at the start line. The crowd had not built up yet so we headed for our traditional honey bucket visit. It is my favorite to have my sister waiting for me outside the potty. As I step out, I give my spandex running shorts a hard yank up, and announce, "I'm ready to run." Like its a secret what everyone is doing in there?
It was chilly so we jumped around. Our favorite is to do a fashion review. We have found that pre-race line up have become one big running gear fashion show. Admiring different shoe choices ect,. One day I will have to do some interviewing about how people like what they are wearing especially while they are running. That would be fun.
MORE THAN I BARGAINED FOR
Not every race is going to be perfect. You can make mistakes. I made a mistake. Woopsie. My time suffered. I blew myself up so much that I was slower than last year. But my sister wasn't!!! And that was all worth it.
You Go Girl race, I give you thumbs up. I loved loved loved my 10K necklace! It hangs very well with the rest of my race medals. Organized, great post race event. Bagels, energy drinks, ect,. Well done. I will be back.
