I just went to go register for my half-marathon on Saturday. They had some bad news for me: It’s supposed to be rainy and cold so I should, “Dress accordingly.” I’ve never run in the rain, what does “dress accordingly” mean? I’m thinking it means “stay at home at eat donuts” but I don’t speak fluent runner yet.
I’ve called a few people to let them off the hook for cheering for me along the course. I’d feel really guilty if they got sick just so I could run 13.1 miles. I’d feel even worse if I didn’t finish. This way, if I wuss out half-way through (the rain! the cold!) I don’t have to worry about anyone waiting for me along the course.
Also – when I registered? They gave me my t-shirt. As in, I already have my shirt for the half-marathon and I haven’t run it yet. You know what that means, don’t you? That I’m staying home in the warm house and eating donuts while wearing my half-marathon shirt. That’s what it means.
Okay, no it doesn’t. But you know the thought has crossed my mind, right?
