Dead Fucking Last

gash in left hip

Gash in left hip

Today I “ran” my first race post-crash. It was an 8k (about 5 miles). This past week I’ve tried running a few times. The furthest I could make it was 1 mile. Last night I didn’t make 200 meters. And it all has to do with the gash in my body caused by a doctor’s scalpel. Yes, that hurts.

Anyway, I started near the back of the pack. Was passed by lots of runners, joggers, and walkers doing the 3k fun run. And finished in a time of 1:31:31. To finish 8k. That’s an average pace of 18:20 minutes /mile. At least it was under 20. By the time I finished, they were handing out the cash prizes and all the good food was gone.

I was the last one across the line. Dead Fucking Last. But DFL is better than DNF. Till next time.

  1. It is not easy being last but someone has to be last. I finished second last in my first race and almost didn’t sign up for my second one because I was afraid of being last. Considering that you were participating with a nasty gash in your hip, you did a fantastic job!

  2. DFL is completely understandable after your injury. It takes grit to finish with such an injury. I doubt I could do it, so nice job!
