Charla and Mirna find Shipwreck Beach, and Mirna starts yelling at Charla to run. There's a change of pace. They head down the beach, and Charla supposes that going in the grass might be easier than what they're doing, which is walking on the rocks. Eric and Pink and the BQs are behind, and it turns out that they arrive at Shipwreck Beach close together. "Charla, you HAVE to RUN!" Mirna orders -- up ahead of the other teams, but only slightly. She's apparently under the impression, once again, that this is about Charla simply not putting in the effort necessary to run faster on her foot-long legs. God. Eric and Pink pass Charla and Mirna as Mirna continues yelling at Charla to run. If Mirna thinks she's so blessed mentally, why is she too fuckin' stupid to notice that Charla's legs are too short to allow her to leap from rock to rock and "run" on the rocks? Her legs are too short; SHUT UP about it already. This is what makes me nutsy about this particular situation, and Mirna isn't the first person to be guilty of it: whatever weaknesses your partner has that you obviously know about, if you can't tolerate them, don't take the person. But you can't take the little person with you and keep bitching that she's a slow runner. You knew that. This is her. Take her or leave her, but don't take her and then act like somebody put a goddamn gun to your head. You can't take your 70-year-old dad and complain that he's old, or your really unathletic and uncoordinated friend and complain that he's really unathletic and uncoordinated. If someone is intrinsically beneath you as a partner, then take someone else. Otherwise? Quiet.
The BQs are passing Mirna and Charla, too. Eric and Pink are first to reach a set of canoes, and they read a clue telling them to take a kayak out to the shipwreck where their clue is tied to a buoy. Take note, as these teams get their kayaks into the water, that it's extremely windy, which is presumably going to make this a lot harder. Eric and Pink and the BQs get going. Mirna, discouraged about being passed and knowing that Charla's short legs were a problem during the running on the rocks, is now thoroughly disgusted with everything Charla does, and is barking orders at her about getting the kayak in the water. As usual, they are following the well-known Tallest Person Gets To Boss Shortest Person model of governance. Common in many settings, other than (1) France under Napoleon and (2) certain airline flights I've been on, where the children kicking my seat are clearly their own masters.
