Running Wisdom....
When I ran my best half marathon in Ottawa, I had people ask how I did and I said I ran 21 kms in 1:55:33. One person when I said that, said "Did you win?" I said, well no, I didn't come first - I came 1586 out of 3878 and they said, "Oh, that's too bad that you didn't do better!" I was in the top 1/4 of my gender and 35th out 197 in my age group and they said "Oh, that's too bad!" I ran the best race I had run in three or four years of running but they just didn't get it. You really have to be another runner to understand how great it feels to come over that finish line and place 1586th! (runjanerun)
