A group from our church ran the Race Against Time 5k yesterday. Although I've never run anything before (not even track in high school), it was fun. I got to run with friends and catch up afterwards with others. That's the good news.
The bad news is I ran the course in 29:26. (9th in my class; 84th out of 181). I got smoked by Jen-Jen (pictured), the second fastest girl in the world.
Afterwards, I was sucking down some Gatorade with an old buddy who said, "Hey, Cottar, look at it like this way: you blew past a TON of Southern Baptist pastors!"
"That's like being the tallest midget," I said, "that doesn't really count…"
