Official Vs. Actual, What’s Up With That
Date & Location. The race was originally scheduled IRL in May. That got canceled. The IRL race was to have been in Ohio, The virtual walk took place in laps around my horse pasture, per usual.
Time. After much dithering, which I will spare you, I decided to use the Pig as my June walk. However, they had a deadline of June 1 for results. I picked a likely outside time and sent in it to get my nose counted. No way was I missing Pig bling!
The time I put down ended being pretty close to my actual time. Note to self, if I want to finish in under an hour, don’t stop to make notes to myself.
App. To register results, one needed to use Race Roster. That’s why I practiced with it earlier [Cellcom]. By the time I got around to walking, I was so wildly non-standard that I didn’t bother downloading another app onto my new phone.
Most of the loot came with my entry. I bought the coffee cup as an extra. I may have gone overboard on the pig paraphernalia. How could I not? [Flying Pigs]
Stay safe. Stay sane.
