As you can see one mile was 12:05, but my average pace was 11:45 and I think that's what matters most!
While running there was a a tall overweight man that was running about the same pace as me. At the beginning of the race I passed him and then about halfway through he passed me, and a little while later I passed him again and gained a little ground, but then I got some water and slowed down near the end and he came up right next to me and held his fist out for me so I bumped his fist and said, "great job!" and so we pretty much stuck together the rest of the way! Things like that are what truly make me enjoy/love races! Afterwards I got to see some old friends that I hadn't seen in a while, which was great...so even though I started the race "alone" I finished overflowing with joy!
Alright so before I go I came across some old pictures of me as a kiddo! As you can see weight has never been a friend of mine...that is why I am on a journey to make it my friend!

I guess I've always had thunder thighs! ;)
