The viewpoint of husbands vs. wives. (Read 172 times)

Fear is a Liar

    It could be called the viewpoints of husbands vs. wives or maybe better runners vs. non-runners. I get back from my run and my wife says, "Are you going to take a shower?" I reply, " No, I just ran over 7 miles in the rain and I'm rinsed off". She say's back, "You smell like a wet farm animal and you have dirt and leaves, and what is that - a dead worm on your leg?" I say back, "I don't think I stink and the worm looks like he's still alive."  She says, "Ugg. Get that thing out of here and get in the shower." 

     

    Later on she says, "I know you like to run, but you do it in the rain, when its freezing cold or hot out, or in the middle of the night. I'm not telling you that you've lost your marbles, but there is definitely a hole in the bag."

    I'm so vegetarian I don't even eat animal crackers!

        Ha!  My hubby thinks the same.  Now that he runs, I am hoping he'll change.

         

        Although the look he gave me when I was leaving for a run during TS Andrea says otherwise.

          I remember one time I ran in 37° and pouring rain. I got home and my jacket was dripping all over the kitchen floor. Hubby said "you actually ran in that?" And I said yep! He said I was insane. I was like, I know...

          Just B.S.


            Luckily for me my hubby runs marathons  as well (we also both do tri's). I did my first half in 2003 and

            he did his first half in 2004. So no differing viewpoints in this house. Just sometimes a bit of debate over

            which destination marathon we are going to choose for our vacation and who has to drive the van to

            work instead of ride their bike. Big grin

             

            And lots and lots of laundry!!

              Look, you need to shower after a run and I don't care if it was raining.  Hygiene is not negotiable.

                  We have lots of laundry and much of that is towels from the many showers taken in

                      The post-run shower is probably my favorite part of every run. A close call with the post-run feed, often I can't decide which to do first.

                              I can't argue with that.  Ice baths my ass.  Give me a steaming hot shower - especially after a cold run.
