It’s hard to know if
there are two hundred people
here or two thousand.  The giant
TV screens filled with runners
might make you believe it’s
a million.  You can see
the starting line from your place

You strip off your athletic
pants and jacket—it is cold
now with the sun just up but it
won’t be for long.  You turn
on your Garmin and let it place you
in the world—
Mankato, MN.
