Race #22 of 2013Josh (whom I actually pushed on at the end to urge him to get in faster than me since I was a little early) and one other person at the Salt Lake City Half Marathon. Anyway, the opportunity is fun and most people are kind and grateful that we are out there. Some people hate to see me, (as I pass them) and I just smile and tell them they are doing a good job and keep it up. Yesterday, at the Hobbler Half Marathon one girl was very vocal and said "Ugh.....I hate seeing those people in yellow shirts!" as I passed her. I slowed down a little bit and told her to hurry on past me. I think that made her a little bit happy. I eventually had to pass her again. I just had to continue on doing my job.
