What if all the tumblr runners met up one day and...
fun race, wasn’t nervous for it, but it went meh. it was only a 2.5K, so a little over a mile and a half, and it was at 9 pm, so in the dark. except, since it was in relay format, there were only 20 girls running at a time, which lead to huge gaps so it was a major mental challenge. i didn’t run that great, got the baton in first, went out fast to try and keep the lead, came back...
