Highlights for 2014!
Whitby, Canada Half Marathon - I placed in my age group, 50-54. It was last place, but still, I placed. Those dam Canadians are fast!
Phoenix, AZ Rock n Roll Half Marathon - I was beat by a runner, uh, a Blind Runner. Not partially blind, 100% blind, being led by a rope.
Phoenix, AZ Rock n Roll Half Marathon - I was beat by a guy missing half a leg. And I do not mean a blade runner, I mean a guy with half a leg, on CRUTCHES! But he only beat me by a minute or three.
Indianapolis, Indiana Monumental Full Marathon. I was beat by a speed walker. The guy was old and fast. And still beat me after I tripped him three times!
Mount Dora, FL Half Marathon. Not only was I beat (again) by a speed walker, I was even reprimanded by him. "We take offense to the term Speed Walkers, we are called Race Walkers". Needless to say, I corrected myself and called him AS***LE Speed Walker!
