Well, an update I promised the world, and an update you all will get.
So about that little ten-mile race I ran on Sunday, you know, the one where I activated my superpowers and ended up with 1:03:00 and thought for all the world that I would get an age group award for my speediness because last year’s winner in my age group ran a 1:03:42 and so obviously at the very least I should be in line for third place. Yeah, about that. The results were finally released today and well, I’ll let you all see for yourselves…
Yeah, as you can see, NOT…EVEN…CLOSE. I’m a little embarrassed for all the hoopla I caused everyone, especially my friends who had to hear me ranting and raving the past couple of days on Facebook. Oops! I guess my consecutive streak of running fast enough to just miss out on the podium will continue onward for a few more races. I know I’m not suppose to care about such things but when you allow the possibilities to percolate in that little brain that hmmm, maybe 1:03 is kinda fast, and hmm, maybe I do deserve an award for being awesome and then find out the harsh reality that no, you're still kinda just average, it’s just a little bit disappointing to say the least. (It’s like when you score digits for a hot date one lucky night out on the town…only to find out a day later that the number was the hotline to the local DA's office...)
Don’t worry about me, I’ll be fine. Thanks for all the congratulatory comments in the last post anyway. I am so not deserving. I’ll be back later to post a more positive running update. I just wanted everyone to know, in the spirit of full disclosure, that guess what, I am definitely not as speedy as I or anyone else would like to think that I am.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to take my frustrations out on the track for some hard intervals. At least there, I can still pretend that I’m all Kenyan on the inside!
