So, how do I know/prove that I have mastery over the sport? Is it winning a race? Knowing what a fartlek is? Getting a online degree called a Bachelor Of Running Degree (BORD)? Could it be from qualifing for the Olympics? Nope. None of the above.
Turns out all I had to do was turn 40, which I did last week. Now I join this elite group that calls themselves masters. All of a sudden I know what I'm doing when I toe the line at a race. To all my fellow master runners out there, you no longer have to look down at me (like my last name is Sandusky). I am one of you.
My first chance to show off my master prowess is at the Dallas White Rock Marathon this Sunday. I am pretty excited for this race, in part because I have prepared well (300+ miles in the month of November). However, the weather report isn't looking too good; chance of showers with a low of 37º, high of 44º. This will probably be the worst marathon conditions I've ever ran in. If I hadn't already paid for everything, I'd be tempted to find another marathon.
