Well I did it. I ran the entire Wicked 10K!
Aside from walking through the water stops and one pit stop in the bathroom (stupid water), I ran the entire shebang!
I’d tell you my time, but the results aren’t up yet. Boo.
I ran the whole thing!
I ran the whole thing and don’t feel like dying!
The post race party was inside due to the incoming hurricane. The post race party also included beer!
Costumes! There were some pretty creative people. I saw Superman coming out of a phone booth, The Tide, and a hamster running in a wheel (still don’t know how he made it the entire race). I managed to snap a picture of a couple:
I know it’s blurry, but he was moving quickly! It’s a shark with a pair of legs sticking out! Genius!
It was hella windy. Again, thanks Sandy!
Since it was so windy, crap kept blowing in my eyes making it hard to see.
After my stop in the bathroom I lost my jelly beans that I was going to eat at mile 3. I was fine, but man was I looking forward to those jelly beans!
So overall, a pretty good race! I also like to people watch/listen in on others conversations. What? Like you don’t do the same thing?
Things you hear that are only OK at the Wicked 10K
“Hey, I’ve got another bag of blood back here if we run out.”
“Does my butt look better this way? Or this way?”
“Oh man! My moustache blew off!”
And now, I’m going to sleep and drink water. Not at the same time, of course ;)
