I did it.
I ran a race. with a number on my leg,
And I got a medal around my neck.
I feel like I am officially a runner.
Maybe a jack runner.
It was a 6.1 mile run
(other runners say "10k"- I'm still not ready for that one)
In about 55 minutes.
I had no idea that there wouldn't be anyone timing the race
or telling me what place I came in.
I was right about in the middle of the fast and slower runners.
That's okay with me.
It was the first time I had run in two weeks and that was a mistake.
My body has officially aged about thirty years today.
Hopefully its just temporary ;)
All considered, I think I did pretty well.
Check out some pictures
They're not much to look at.
I felt a little silly posting them in multiple places.
