Why yes that is a trophy in my hand. I surprisingly won 1st place in my age group, coming in at 27:16 (I think). They said there were about 600 runners so I was pretty happy!
The back of my shirt, which motivated me to run faster. I figured the more people I passed, the more that would see my shirt!
At the start of the race we had to run on a busy road with just one lane blocked off and there were a lot of slow runners in front who were hard to get around. Mitch got around them first and took off, leaving me in his dust. He beat me by about a minute, 45 seconds (but I got a trophy!). :)
