But then I got to thinking that, really, most of the people in my age range were asleep Saturday morning while I was running. I think particularly in a 10k (as opposed to a 5k), a lot of the participants are athletes. So now I'm telling myself that I was really competing against athletes, so I didn't do that bad. Maybe I'm wrong, but don't shatter my reality.
And a special note for johnmcelroy ... the course took us by Lake Maitland, where I saw the UF Crew team putting in their boats in. I would've yelled out a "Go Gators!" but I'm pretty sure I would've collapsed.
