Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Bring on the Pain

Well, it’s that time of year again. We began my ritual self-abuse today. That’s right, it’s race season. We participated in the 22nd Annual Tulsa St. Patrick’s Day Run. It wasn’t the hell that I remembered from last year. I actually performed pretty well and more than that I enjoyed it. My time was by no means stellar, but it was better than my fastest 5K from last year.

My wife was more than a little disappointed that she didn’t place this time. She did, however, run like a jackrabbit and shamed me something horrible, finishing with a time just over 26 minutes. All three of the place winners for her age group finished in the 22-minute range.

Being a St. Paddy’s Day race, I felt compelled to wear this giant green Dr. Seuss hat with a shamrock on it. Let’s just say that it caught a few strange stares, but all and all, it achieved the desired result of causing people to smile. Hell, some of them out right laughed.

After I crossed the finish line, we went in search of water and some fruit that was provided for the runners. We find both of these with no problems, but it was the beer stand that seemed to stand out like a sore thumb. Yep, they were also serving beer to the runners. No one seemed to give a second thought to the fact that it was only 9:30 in the morning. Oh well, when in Rome…

I hate to admit it, but I am actually looking forward to the next one. Who knows maybe this year I can train enough to actually be able to catch my wife.
