Starting Line: This shouldn't be so hard, right? Look at the other people running this: there are a lot of old folks and chubbsy ubbsies. No problem.
5K Mark: Woo-hoo! 5K done! And in just 20 minutes. That would have been, like, good enough to be top-15 in my YMCA's Turkey Trot last Thanksgiving. No big deal.
Mile 4: Why do all women run funny? I swear every one of them has the same gait as a gazelle who's been impaled by a spear, only with more awkward arm-swinging.
Mile 6: All of these people cheering from the sides of the course are really encouraging. If my name was Jenn, Heather, or Sarah and they were yelling for me, it would be at least twice as inspirational.
Mile 7: Just had my first energy gel. It was coffee flavored, and it tasted just like the real thing, except if coffee was a disgusting viscous gel instead of a delicious liquid.
