Like Eli

I did it.

I'm sure many others have been there at one point or another.

I signed up for a race.
That might be a Kids race.

So.

Let's view the registered participants.

What's that?
You don't see me?

Oh.

I looked at the participants before I clicked SUBMIT.
And since I got scared that it might be a Kids race, I opted OUT of displaying my name.
:-)

Now.
This is my hometown.
A 1-mile race ahead of the annual x-mas parade.
I do not believe this 1-mile race is held annually. Might be the inaugural?

Well.
Who's registered?
Again. My hometown.

I don't know any of these people!
And there's a bunch of kids!

Full disclosure.
Fine.

I do know OF one person.
Our 28 year old mayor.
Fresh off a DUI conviction. Sweet!

What to do then?

Bring one of my kids along? And not race it?

Try to knock out a 5:30 mile?
But veer into the crowd if it looks completely uncool?

Ah, decisions.

Guess we'll find out on race day!

You never fail to crack me up. I say run it... but dressed a reindeer w/jingles bells, of course. Extra credit for a working red-bulb nose (your headlamp has a red-light setting like mine, right? set to "flashing" for added bling). Full face or eye mask required to disguise your shame, er... I mean, your identity. And please, choose an appropriate pace time based on the race crowd's age & reception? Sheesh.

I'm with Molly: gun for a 5:30! Make sure you pull out a Flash or Captain America costume, though, or some kid might cry.
