The Susan G Komen Race for the Cure took place this morning. While it definitely had some nice touches for survivors in particular, the organizers demonstrated once again their inability (lack of interest?) to take the "race" side of things with some seriousness: after making the runners 's ritual restroom stop (some 4 to 5 minutes before race time), I found out that the race had already started! No problem there, right? Let's start that whole thing early so we can be done and go home ! I got immensely frustrated and thought of giving up for in front of me were hundreds of "walkers" and runners. But mad, I started running and passing, running and passing when a young runner asked me "did you win last year?" and when I replied yes, she added "Oh, you're the one! My mother arrived second and wanted to beat you this morning". I told her that if she was ahead, she probably would.....which made me run faster...ha..ha...ha...At least the weather was perfect for a race.
Surprise: Kelley Garcia in pink tutu
I did arrive 1st (survivors)after all this but I have no way of knowing what my time was! Steve was pretty much in the same boat!
