But, I was 4th! 4th! It never occured to me that I could be 4th- even in the huskeroo division. When I saw that on my little ticket print out I thought, "WTF!? You could have ran harder than that!"
Mfer. Well, I'm still on for Saturday and I'll be hoping the defending champ gets some sort of food poisioning... not the fatal kind of course... I'm not that cruel.
In the beginning I thought it seemed kind of unfair, but lets say the average skinny runner gal is 110-115... well I'm carrying a 50lb backpack... of course I'm slower, but I'm still out there... doing it. I guess I'll take any kind of running success wherever I can. Plus, being a person that was so much heavier (not all that long ago)... I am actually proud to say my weight...(166.5! Maybe 167 since I had outback for dinner!) a number most people would gasp at... you know why? It isn't obese. It isn't overweight and I feel and look wayyyyy better than I ever dreamed.
Anyway, I have so many svelte award grabbing runners on this blog... do you think the clydesdale/athena class is bs? Does it take away from your award glory?
PS: Thanks to my followers, new and old. It is just nice to be read and hopefully make a few people laugh.
