First of all-this is the day of the year when you say all day long-What time is it? It is also the day of the year that marks more darkness and I really hate the darkness. Happy Standard Daylight Time.
So today was the New York City Marathon. Since I am still going through marathon withdrawal I was quite moved to watch the runners. I really wish someday the odds will be ever in my favor and I get to run.
So I watched the women's elite start the race in a small pack way ahead of everyone else. I thought about the elites and was like please
You run for 2 hours or so? I run for five-who's tougher?
You have all day for runs, strength training, eating properly, massages, and sleeping? Please-I work 12 hours a day and am going to school full time. You are kind of wimpy.
You get paid to go to these races and then they pay you for placing? Please. I pay for all my own travel and race fees and I put my name in a lottery in hopes that I get to run. You are kind of wimpy.
Tell me really -who is the elite runner?
Commentators say stupid things. For instance today he said, "You know these runners aren't like someone who just gets off the couch and runs a 4 hour marathon." Really? I don't know anyone who just gets off the couch and runs a four hour marathon. Douchy guy
So I'm watching Nik Wallenda cross a high wire. I'm pretty sure he's this decades David Blane.
Have a great week!
