My husband has taken up racing, and has two first place medals that he likes to wave in front of me to prove he is a champion. If the medals were for running, I'd be jealous...and a little frustrated...but, luckily, it's for go-cart racing. Serious go-cart racing. They dress as if they were in a Nascar race and speed around a track at warp speed, and he has won twice.
I want to win. Yes, I see just finishing as winning - I honestly do. It will be a HUGE accomplishment to cross that finish line, and I will be on such a high from doing so. But I want to win. So, I decided I'm going to make my own category and WIN! I'm sure I won't be the fastest in my age group, so I can't go with just age as my category. It'll have to be something like this:
Winner in the Category of: 38 years old on the verge of turning 39
Has two daughters & celebrate 10 years of marriage
Has been running seriously for 10 months
Wears a knee sleeve on her right knee
Uses the Pink Lemonade Honey Stinger Chews
I will own this category....
