Oh! You run? (Read 2663 times)

    One of our top professional cyclists dated a young lady and when he told her what he did she said wasn't he a bit old to be still playing on bikes, if only she had realised what he earned

     

    When you say, "dated" are saying there _was_ a second date after a comment like that?

        My mom and her brother got in an argument about how long marathons were and if they were always the same length.  Mom did not really know but she was pretty sure I had said 26 miles.  Her brother (who always knows better than everyone else) kept insisting she was wrong that it was some other mileage and that if the one I did was 26 miles then it wasn't a standard marathon.

         

        Turns out people who use km as their main unit are no better at translating to miles than the average American.

         

        I was a little frightened during a discussion with my physical therapist trying to explain that 50K was 31 miles.  He knew a 10K was 6.2 miles but we went round and round on how you get from 10K to 50K.  Or even easier from 5K to 50K.  He couldnt get there.  But then I decided math wasnt really a necessary skill for a PT.

                Not mine.  Usually it takes about 5 months for him to bill.  Which sounds cool and all except when you are trying to close an accident claim.

                  That's probably based on their state legislated value of pi.

                  It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                        I answered the door sporting my slick Boston Marathon finisher t-shirt.

                         

                        Only if I ever qualified and ran it, would I be be able to experience the awful embarrassment of wearing a Boston shirt and having someone, you know, notice it.

                             No one has checked their garmin at the finish to see.

                              See, I don't run, because I've never run a marathon.  I've not even run a race with marathon in the title, even if it isn't a marathon, whatever a marathon is.
