The tortoise and the hare

Created by Elaina on 01/10/2015
When I was in my 30s I decided to run the Honolulu Marathon, to prove I wasn't quite over the hill yet. Jim, in his mid-sixties agreed to run the marathon with me. We set off together filled with fresh energy as fireworks filled the sky and cheers erupted. I sort of kept pace for about the first mile. At the end of the day, Jim beat me by 2 hours!! Jim had such boundless energy, that one of my nicknames for him was the energy bunny. That day the tortoise did her best and finished, but the hare was the clear winner!
