I was THAT person...

Saturday morning was the That Dam Lake Texoma 5K run.  Knowing how fast, or slow, I am, I usually start in the back.  I hate the people that start at the very front, then when the horn blows, they start off walking or jogging very slow.

Well Saturday, I decided I wanted to be in the front.  So, I wobbled my way up to the front and waited for the GO signal.  As soon as it started, I felt a rush.....not a 'let's do this rush', but a rush of people passing me as I slowly jogged my way from the starting line.  I learned my lesson, never start near the front again.

I jumped out right before the start and took this picture.
