Fun??? Run

Well, I did it. I finished the Halloween 5k "Fun" run!! Woo-freakin'-hoo. I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo slow. Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo slow. Did I mention I am slow??? Sei was running "with me" and at one point I was a little behind him. When I was looking at him run I was thinkin' "Holy cow he's running slow." Then I realized I was the one setting the pace for us and I was behind him. Slow! Slow! Slow! I told Sei, "Let's beat those 2 old ladies dressed up at scarecrows." Yeah- that never happened and they were OLD and ran like OLD LADIES. Sei said "Let's sprint now." for like the last 100 yards. Yeah- ok babe. He so left me. I thought I was sprinting until a 5 year old passed me with his dad... who was pushing a baby stroller. Ugh. Anyway- I finished #125 out of I don't know how many. Maybe 200 or so? They had charts showing where everyone placed in their age group. The 1st chart had the top 16. My goal (since I didn't beat the old scarecrows) was to make it on the 1st chart. I did!! I was #14 in my age group. I didn't stick around to see if only 14 people my age ran... Sei placed 9th. He so could have kicked butt if he hadn't "stayed with me."
Anyway- we went out to eat afterwards and stuffed our faces. That was nice. I'll do better next year. I will place in the top 10... of my age group.

Good for you!
Old Scarecrow ladies beat you?
Don't feel bad, the mental image of anyone running makes me tired.

Pssst, I tagged you for a MeMe!
This must be your lucky day or something.
