are races and then there are Races are for the fiveminuteamile crowd the guys and girls whose idea of a lunch hour is a cracker followed by 45 minutes of interval Events are for the nineand 10minuteamile and for the guys who like to run in clown suits and Groucho Marx Their idea of training is a few beers the night a slow and a few beers at the finish The Olympic is a The Capitol is an The Olympic 10k is high Chariots of the thrill of the agony of The Capitol is runners disguised as newspapers and Thats oversimplifying the situation a because the Capitol held last Sunday in had plenty of serious runners maybe a couple hundred or The rest of the came to soak up the colorful Im in the latter category because Im real In previous Ive been passed by old ladies with varicose 10yearold kids and German My idea of a kick is not slowing down too much in the last But I had never run in this and Id heard it was quite a No To start the race is the secondlargest of its kind or 10 is miles in the country second only to the bizarre Bay to Breakers run in which is a sevenmile costume I had never run in a 10k with more than 500 so I wanted to see what runners looked I got there which meant I got to shiver a since the temperature was in the 40s and the wind was whipping in at 20 miles an there was something going on that warmed everyone up a Jazzercise exhibition in a nearby parking Lots of slim women in shiny suits were doing a beautifully choreographed routine to what else the theme from Chariots of Runners would wander try to follow the routines for then wander As race time I faced a crucial Do I run in my warmup suit Do I keep the jacket and throw the pants in the car and get a mild case of or peel the whole thing and take my chances on permanent damage I opted for the As it turned time passed mainly because some strange folks started While waiting in the street for the starting I saw Two A walking Sunday complete with plastic A guy in a wedding My who was taking asked him why he was wearing a wedding This is a drag isnt it he A clown wearing foam rubber feet with a plastic nose and cutoffs with a can of insect repellent in one pocket and Cruex in the Two military units with matching yells and I had to Dats a as they went it was race The tension the moment everybody has been waiting Bang The starting gun Were were not The guys at the front are but Im still 100 yards from the starting I dont know if I can stand this I yelled to no one in It takes me almost three minutes to pass under the start By this the leaders are hopelessly out of I never saw Roger the guy who won in mainly because he turned in a first He was out of sight before I could top the first When I passed the first mile I heard a guy with a stopwatch calling out By that Roger was probably into his I did see the first woman Tracy Lynn who finished in saw her in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency hotel after the waiting for the awards back in the thousands of us are running bumper to bumper like a Houston freeway at 5 We crested that first hill and saw an im pressive sight runners packed curb to curb all the way down 15th Street and up Enfield Their bobbing motions made the street look like it was being eaten by a singlecelled Then I mustered the courage to look behind and saw runners packed curb to curb as far as I could see in that That was a confidence Ive never been ahead of that many run I dont know precisely how but I wasted lots of energy trying to find room to run the first two I sped slowed cut back against the shifted gears and jumped curbs to find tiny openings to run Each mile got and the crowd finally thinned out to where I could run at my own pace instead of the guys in front of The rest of the race was a but I did notice I was running a fairly quick Mile 4 went by in less than eight which is almost a sprint for a nineminute miler like Miles 5 and 6 took an hour and a or at least it seemed like it I finished in and I was pretty Thats slow for most but its my fastest 10k The euphoria didnt last I knew I never should have attended the awards I found out a guy at least 32 years older than I am won the mens masters division in 41 I heard about a blind runner who finished in 37 The guy in the wedding dress probably beat me without a But there were some people I nipped at the finish A pregnant runner finished in 61 minutes I beat her And I simply creamed Bea Newark of who finished in two five She never had a chance against my torrid Of Bea is 84 years I should do so well at that An armadillo wearing tennis shoes Almost
