I have no superstitions about bib numbers. However, I have hoped for a 31 in my bib numbers since my first race. It’s never happened, closed I’ve been was 33 (339 for a 10K in November and 5339 at the LA Marathon). When I went to the expo yesterday and stopped by the table to find out my number, I was surprised to see what I’d been assigned.
My 31-loving heart was quite happy. It’s almost as cool as placing 31st at a 5K last month. (It was a very small field, about 80 people.)
