the idea behind this race is that you have to beat the draw bridge at mile 2 which gets raised at the 20 minute mark. if you don't get there in time, you have to stop and wait for it to come back down, but there's a band there to serenade you while you wait. dsch dsch dsch.

i felt pretty tired today, but it's good for me to get back into racing as i work on rebuilding. 

one of the aid stations was doing the wave with a line of volunteers and it was so amazing that i got a short two second burst of speed. i also had an awkward run-in with the one wheelchair participant at the one hairpin turn on the course. he was like hey-oh and i was like oh-hey and we did a bit of a dance and then we were on our way and i ran the rest of the race with cringe-embarrassed face.

You'll always be that awkward little girl I knew from junior high.
