I ran my first 5k and amazingly enough I didnt die during it. As you might know, I did go to one race before, back in november… when i was stalking ran into Tina Fey the silver medal winner of last years vice presidential election.
i dont know who’s bright idea it was to do races EARLY in the morning, but whoever it was is NOT my friend. I had to get up at nearly 6 am sunday morning for the 5k, and i did not wake up feelin like p diddy… [or brush my teeth with a bottle of jack]
oh and rewind champion meal late night before the race:
anyways, we got to the race in time to pick up our free junk. there was free food too, but i wasnt smart enough eating machine wasnt smart enough to think of taking a picture of it. [she was smart enough to steal get some lara bars]
luckily I had conned a friend into waking up at 6 am and running 3 miles in the cold [sorry brad] so at least i didnt have to run alone!
and, this was the “Race for the Roses” we finished and got our very manly colored roses
…..ok 450th place is winning… right? hey it was out of 1066 people.
we both finished with a time of 32:43
OH YEAH! this race, sponsored by oh, i dont know, just my favorite thing in the world that isnt a girl with a money sign in her name, VITAMIN WATER. oh and what did i NOT see at the race? VITAMIN WATER! they gave us smart water, but NO VITAMIN WATER. um… thats not ok. dear vitamin water jesus, i ask you this is every post, GIVE ME FREE VITAMIN WATER.
Also on my trip to portland i stopped by so-lame [salem] i found two things there. the world!
