We did it. We (maybe just I) relived my high school cross country years. My best friend Quinn was ALWAYS way faster than me. I always wished I could beat her. I invited her to a friendly 5k fundraiser for our Boy Scouts 12 years after our last cross country meet. Little did she know that all I wanted was to run her into the ground. I had been training for over 3 months just so I could smoke her at the race. It would have helped me if I have told her all these years I was holding a competitive grudge. Quinn didn't even train. In fact she has a slight stress fracture from her NYC Marathon from last year.
All I could do was maybe tie with her at the end of the race.
(Someone had already finished and decided to finish the race again with one of her best friends)
