twice now

meghan and i ran the crystal city Friday 5K tonight. or, most of it. the storm came in and they shut down the course.

but as i was jogging (and then walking....and then more walking) along the streets of arlington, i realized...

how many times have i been out driving and a road is blocked off because of a race? i used to get annoyed. now i'm the person on the course.

i'm still SO slow and don't really even run that much of the 3.1 miles, but the fact that i'm the person ON the course now instead of driving by it....i'm proud of that.
