    Idiot

      What is there to battle over?
      Seriously.

      I decided that if I'm going to call myself a runner, I should probably run.


      A Dance with Monkeys

        Wise versus Idiocy. Duh.

          It's been a rough day for you. But hopefully it will get better! It sucks that douche band canceled, but good that you booked 3 shows!! And you don't suck because you totally were able to come back and fix it. Over the Monkey, I'm not helpful because I'm biased. I want you to run it! But, that doesn't take into account whether or not it's really best for you (or your legs) Plus I'm the idiot who is passing up relatively flat Philly for the Monkey (so people keep insinuating anyway)... and believe me if I could do them both I'm probably stupid enough to try it... but they are the same day so I had to pick...


          Idiot

            Plus I'm the idiot who is passing up relatively flat Columbus for the Monkey (so people keep insinuating anyway)...
            Fixed for personal relevancy. Not that I couldn't do both, but I won't (this year). MTA: I couldn't... just sayin'

              Fixed for personal relevancy. Not that I couldn't do both, but I won't (this year). MTA: I might be able to if I tried... but I won't so this firmly locks it in the coulda, woulda, shoulda category.
              fixed.

                There's still a battle going on? How about that.

                    You can and will have a philly type of experience. Those types of marathons are all over the place. I think it's important to do one like that.....a bigger one with crowds and shit. A friend of mine ran the pig this year in Cincy and she was blown away with the experience of running with a lot of others and seeing spectators on the course! Sheesh. And that's not even that big. Roll eyes Not flat either, fyi. I hear Philly is a great one, and you might also think about Steamtown when you wanna shatter a personal best down the road. But to have the monkey as the first is a helluva neat thing. You're making the right decision.
                    Come across any cool medals lately?

                      Thanks!! I will get to them eventually. It's just more intimidating than I can to admit - the people that is. The largest race I ran had about 1000 people and that wasn't too bad. Secretly what I'm hoping to do is get around to meeting more people in my area so when I decide to do a big one i'll know more people. Then maybe it will be easier... OR some of you guys could just so happen to make the trip up North!

                                As usual, idiocy wins.
