I do understand why people ask with that oh, dear heavens Abby has gone crazy tone in their voice though. If you are not a runner it seems like a ridiculous distance, sometimes (many times) it still seems like a nutso distance to me and I already signed up for a second 26.2. Plus, I will admit, I don't always look like what lots of people picture a marathon runner to be in their head. However, I love that. I love that at the race there were people of all shapes, sizes, age groups, experience levels, etc. Because in the end, it doesn't matter how you do it as long as you do.
So to the man who asked me by my car... Why?
TO PROVE I COULD :)
