Shut up and run

I've got a fever...
The thing that cracks me up the most is when people hear how far you run. "What? You ran how many miles???" Granted, a year ago I never thought I'd be able to run this far, but why do they ask if they're not going to believe you???
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

• 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1
• 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)
I get this ALL the time! What I don't understand is why almost no one seems to know that a marathon is a specific distance.
You'll ruin your knees!

People always say to me, Wow, I could NEVER run a marathon!
I tell them: it's not that you couldn't, it's just that you don't want to!
I don't mean it in a harsh way --- I just mean that if you are willing to put in the horus and the miles, most people could finish (we're not talking time here), a marathon.
I'm not gonna lie --- I enjoy it when people are amazed with my running ... even if it's nothing super amazing
