It's Mom and Dad's Fault !

This morning, parking my car before going into the bank, I had an epiphany. I started to take the last parking spot in front of the bank, but instead decided to park a little farther away so an older person could have the spot (sure enough an old lady who couldn't get around very well took the spot and I felt good about myself). Then I began to realize something...

It's just the way I was raised: the elderly, ladies, and children all get to go first. And that is why I am blaming my parents for my placing 18th out of about 40 who ran the 10k Sooner State Trail Run this past Saturday. Sure, I was 1st in my age group, but for some reason I was the only male in my age group.

Why did so many ladies, younger people, and older people come in before me? I'm blaming my parents!

This older man thanks you. Sorry I missed seeing you there. I thought it was a great run, and well run.
