First Great Race

I really hate running. But somehow that didn't stop me from making a standing offer to Stephen (who had been running all the time) to beat him in any race without training at all. So when the SCS Pretty Good Race (5k) came up, I had to race him. I lost by 15 seconds or something. He had gotten really good! So when the Great Race (10k) came up a few weeks later, I knew I had to win. So after I dumped too much water on my mouth/body near the end and I got a little nauseous, I knew I had a choice between puking and beating Stephen. So I ended up puking all over the ground while still running to win. By 4 seconds (48:11 vs. 48:15). But looking at the pictures, I’m not sure it was worth it.
