Ricky G. posted this earlier today:
Just saw the race results today…you’re the only flower among a group of thorn 21K finishers! and 12th place at that. Kudos jaymie!
Nonchalantly, I browsed through the official results to confirm 12th place. Upon seeing the results, I was tickled pink.
Ricky was right. I was the only flower among the thorns. Or, to be more literal, the only F among the M’s…on the entire page 4!
This may only happen once in my entire lifetime. So, please allow me this 10 minutes of pure happiness and pride. I may just print this out and tuck it under my pillow tonight.
