There is no medal for finishing in 16,974th place
Since they give gold for first, silver for second and bronze for third, I suspect that 16,974th deserves something made of, oh, dirt or sticks or a discarded Gatorade paper cup.
I should know, for I finished in 16,974th place last Saturday.
That showing took place at the Monument Avenue 10K, held in Richmond.
The organizers of this event are very clever. You see, they don't call it the "Monument Avenue six-point-two miler."
