Four: In the past year, I won my first event. Then I managed to win a few more. I’ve won four events in the past year. Here are the highlights:
Tesfa 5K, Nov 2007
5K run in 19:11
Reason for winning: Small field of runners (maybe 60)
35 flight stair climb (900 stairs) in 4:11
Reason for winning: Naive - raced hard and nearly puked
5K run in 17:26
Reason for winning: Finally getting a little speedy
5K run (while ingesting 15 doughnuts) in 28:46
Reason for winning: Iron stomach + speedy legs = perfect event for me
Race day, I know I’m going to have a hard time keeping calm just after starting. I need to REALLY try to tone it down for the first few miles. And then I’ll need to see what I can do at mile 20. If anyone out there has any marathon advice for me, I’d love to hear it.
Four is also the perfect number of boobs. It just is. Don't fight me on this.
