SERIOUSLY------I MUST BE CRAZY!
To further prove my point--------my sweet friend, Ron White, invited us all to come to North Carolina----in the cool mountains----for a 5K. SUCH a NICE GESTURE----REALLY THANK YOU RON! The sad fact is that our running group will not in most cases drive across Ruston (about 10 minutes MAX) to run in a 5K. NOW JUST MENTION THE WORD MARATHON------AND WE'LL TRAIN FOR 18 GRUELING WEEKS OF LONG RUNS------AND THEN HOP A PLANE TO POINTS ALL OVER THE USA-----TO RUN 26.2 MILES! What's wrong with that picture?
As I was running this AM---you know I missed my Wednesday run----and LORD help me if I don't make that up! In this SERIOUS HEAT & HUMIDITY---I began to question my sanity as the sweat poured off me and EVERY square inch was drenched. WHAT IN THE WORLD sends a person over the edge anyway! As the sweat dripped in my eyes and they burned from the salt and I fought for a breath in the sauna like atmosphere---I JUST HAVE TO QUESTION MY SANITY!
Rolling all this through my head, while getting gas on the way home, I see and old friend that I have not seen for a LONG time. He looks over and said, "I wondered who that good looking woman was." NOW THAT IS A HUGE BIG ONE---there I am drenched, still sweating, with my hair soaked and plastered to my head-----YEAH RIGHT- GOOD LOOKING & SANE!
