Yup, that's how I am. I did great in the 5k. My time was 42 minutes, 20 seconds. I ran with my friend, who I will call "Enchilada". (Don't ask-- it's an inside joke. You wouldn't get it.)
Her sister ran WAY ahead of me, Enchilada, and Enchilada's mom. She got 3rd place in girls, 14 and under. At the end, I ran WAY far ahead of Enchilada and her mom and sprinted past the finish line.
IT FELT GREAT!
