Tumbling about getting healthy & fit (lost 116 lbs but gained back 50 #sadpanda), learning to love myself and trying to live life to the fullest.

The Cool Kids

I had planned on sneaking to one of the corrals ahead of me to build a cushion so I’m not pressured with the time restrictions. Don’t worry, I’ll stay out of the way from the speedy runners.

What’s the best way to do that? I’ve never had an assigned corral & in looking at the race info there are 25 corrals. I do not want to be in the last corral which I fear I will be in. I guess I’m just unsure of how things will work that morning.
