The difference between Mike and Joy is very evident in our ability to finish a 5k race. I always thought it was because Mike has nice long legs or that I'm a female and just can't run as fast as the male population . . . but I watched a little girl who couldn't have been more than 6 years old finish before both of us.
I was still looking forward to both of us getting recognized for finishing first in our age groups but the race organizers thought that they should give metals to the top three winners for age groups and combined the men with the women of the same age into one group. . . needless to say, I wasn't the only one disappointed. The organizers also messed up with Mike's age group and even though Mike finished way before the three men who got a metal, he went home with just me as his prize!
