On Saturday night I ran the Taco de Mile which was a one mile run that involved stopping every quarter mile to eat a taco. I finished this event in 11:24, which like, I guess is a good time. I finished 36th out of over 300 although I am pretty sure that doesn’t count for anything.
I showed up for the race dressed as if I was about to run a marathon, which made me feel a bit silly about the whole thing, but I own dedicated running clothes and not any taco eating clothing. The first half of the race went smooth, although I did feel a little silly stopping for water after only a quarter mile. However by the third taco I was breathing heavy and eating a bit slower. Still I pushed through because it was only a mile.
My next run is the Dirt Cheap Trail race on Wednesday. For this one, I won’t eat until after I am done.
