Last weekend, I tagged along with Jim to Louisville where he ran a half marathon. This was my first race and I was nearly overwhelmed by the sheer mass of people wanting to run a long distance. I heard that there were 11,000 people running and i wondered how on earth I would be able to keep up with Jim along the way. He decided to run with his cell phone and send short texts letting me when he approached mile markers. At first i recieved simple messages like "1" or "2" but then started to get more descriptions like "I'm behind elvis". I can't even text and walk so i was impressed. It was a really fun event and i suddenly caught a glimpse of myself as a soccer mom. i suppose, if you live in america, some things are inevitable.
