Working my way to that 5km race with Ryan was a lot of fun. I remember we would come home from the gym and "brag" about our times on the treadmill and then try to beat each other. The day of the race, I was feeling a little cocky and I asked Ryan if he minded if we split up. He gave me this look and said SURE if you don't mind too. We lost each other early on getting caught up in the crowd and excitement and before you knew it I was in my groove. I was running faster then I ever had and feeling great. In my mind I thought, I AM SMOKING HIM! At around 3km I CAUGHT up to him, and couldn't keep up. He beat me that day, but I must admit looking at his butt is a nice view.
That race really inspire me. I remember running and wrestling with my shirt that didn't fit, even at the biggest size you could get. It rode up and I ran with it under my boobs most of the run (thank goodness for a white tank underneath). I really wanted my own shirt that said "watch this flab fly!" I may have been a plus size girl but I tell you I felt like a runner, I really did.
