I was actually a bit surprised at the results of my “Would you rather” question about brushing your teeth/deodorant/perfume before runs. It turns out that I’m a filthy dirt bag
The other day, a friend at work said “I’m not sure that I could ever be involved with a sport where there is the possibility of pooping your pants”. Quite honestly, I was speechless. It was one of those rare moments where I did not have a good, quick witted response, like: I don’t do any activity without the fear of shitting myself, that is why I eat Taco Bell at work all day long. I have to wonder how many people would have started to take up the sport if they knew that was a possibility? I still probably would have. I like to live dangerously.
1. I need to get this shit figured out before race day (pun very intended).
2. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for park bathrooms with toilet paper.
3. Somewhere an angel cried because of the things I thought that I was going to have to do behind the swings.
I don’t often (or ever) talk about politics. I figure that we ALL get 40 times too much of that everywhere else. However, every so often running crosses over into normal every day life. (Like when the runner, who just happened to be naked, ran through a neighborhood and jumped into a community pool. . . .and just stood there until the cops came) The editor in chief of Runners World recently speculated that he thinks that Sarah Palin is going to attempt a BQ Marathon in the fall (3:30 was his guess). Whatever you think about her politics, that is FAST. Although, since she isn’t Governor and she isn’t running for Prez, I guess she has a lot of free time on her hands to train?
