Nothing is more depressing to a runner than being overtaken at the finish line by a runner – whom you passed twice during the race.
Except, maybe, to find out she is in your age category!
But what made this incident not so bad was the fact she came up to me after the awards and thanked me for making her kick-ass! (That’s a runner’s term to run faster than everyone else.)
It appears we both benefited from the occasion.
