1) Why do so many people run with headphones, especially in races? I barely did when I ran by myself and now that I run with the group we don't at all. But I'm a talker and like to chat it up with other people around me. During the race last weekend, almost everyone had headphones in and I had no one to talk to :(
2) I mentioned that Let's Move was not as fun as Martian was mostly because I didn't know many people running it and therefore had to focus on my own race. Not that it is a bad thing, but just like numero uno, I'm a social person so I like looking for and talking to other people I know. It's good to focus on yourself though, as this is now my half marathon PR race :)
3) For the first time ever, my garmin time matched finish time exactly. Could I now say that I'm perfect? haha far from it :)
4) Why do they start the shorter distances earlier than the longer? Don't they want those who will be running the furthest to start first to beat the heat and get out of the way of the shorter distances? Let's Move had two 5K waves at 8:15 and 8:30am. Then two half waves at 8:45 and 9:00am. What's with that?
