Today I won second place in my age group during the inaugural running of the Douglasville Junior League Botanical Boogie 5k with a time of over 26 minutes and less than 27 (I forgot to stop my watch immediately after throwing myself across the finish line, but I'm certain it was 26 something.)
Never mind that there may not have been more than two people in my age group, I have a metal and that's settles it. I had my eye on the first place winner of my age group who was about 20 yards in front of me for the entire last mile and a half. I just couldn't catch her, as much as I thought I should have been able to.
Darn these sinus, allergy and heat issues. I could have been a contender.
