Don't you just love...
When you get to that stage in your running when you can actually go running without a watch? That you go to a race just for the fun of running it? You don't even wear a watch or worry about your time.
No pre race stretching or warm ups or worries about what to wear. You just wear what you want to keep warm without worrying about extra clothes slowing you down.
You can just talk to your friends it does not even matter where you line up.
