They thought they would be able to beat me in a nine miler against me by running it as a relay. Three miles per each boy, nine miles for me. I agreed. They probably could beat me. I mean I've never been a speed demon. I just chug along at an averageish pace and place in the middleish of the pack in age group and overall.
But somehow, I got dragged into agreeing to do my long run as a race. Their biggest seller was that if I lose, no big deal, but if I won, I could lord it over them for the rest of senior year. And thanks to facebook, it's now officially an event on Saturday at noon. There will be spectators and picnic food. And if fb events were good indicators, there will be at least 15 people in attendance.
So here are the athletes!
Challenger #1 Master Debater
Person who's challenged (Totally sounds like I'm talking about a disability, but I didn't know what to call myself).
Wish me luck! And stay tuned for the race this Saturday. As more information is available (as I decide on more race details), I will let you guys know.
And I looked like a total creeper at the library going through all the guys' photos and saving them to put on the blog.
Anyone know any good speed workouts? Or wanna advise me on race strategy?
