So today I woke up really early for a Saturday. Threw on a pair of basketball shorts, a shirt, and some shoes. I drove a short distance from my house and...I ran in a 10K. Let me just start by saying that I don't like running and I didn't really train for it, but I made a commitment to the kids I volunteer with. Upon arrival they were all very excited...I was something not related to excited, what I was has probably never even met excited at a social engagement. We all lined up and then we jogged. I can run a 7 min mile pretty effortlessly, but that's one mile. So I crapped out about 2.5 miles into it. My bad leg no longer supports its share of physical activity. So I walked some and then I hit the halfway mark and turned around to finish out the rest. I jogged for about half of the distance while walking the rest. It was rather horrid, but it gave me an opportunity to get out and enjoy the farm fields of Utah. The mountains encompass the valley and you could see the lake a short ways off. Tons of birds were out. It was rather beautiful. So I walked/jogged the rest of it. Hooray me. But here's the best part upon arriving to the finish line table, the lady congratulated me and gave me my time. Great, I'm old and slow and now I have a quantifiable measurement of it. Yay! That's when she dropped it on me. Despite being advertised as a 10K, it was actually 12.5K. Not cool, race dudes. The only time I like to see 25% More is on my food packaging! But hey! I did something cool today. And it was something I never thought I would do. And I finished in the first third! That is cool as well. Take that 10K walkers! So GR, have you done anything you didn't want to have to? Have you done anything hard? Have you had to reach down deep and push hard? (phrasing) Do tell.
