You Know You're a Crazy Runner When........

When you are taking a trip to Hawaii for the first time with your husband, kid free, in four days and before you leave you notice that the Honolulu marathon/10k happens to fall on the following weekend when you will be there and you can still register. Then your heart pounds like crazy because you can't even believe this good fortune! So you try to think of a way to not hurt your husband's feelings by telling him if you don't run the 10K, your life may never ever feel complete. Then you notice that the race is actually on Sunday and not Saturday like you first thought. So part of you is really relieved that you can't race because you don't race on Sundays and now you don't have to hurt your husband's feelings, but the other part of you is so sad you can't run a race in Hawaii. That's when you know you're a crazy runner.

You are a crazy runner! Have fun in Hawaii! I am so excited for you! Get tan and have fun without the kids. If you get a chance, go skinny-dipping for me! Proud of you for keeping the Sabbath!

Wow, that is tough! I must be a crazy runner too because I was right on the same wavelength thinking, "Oh, she HAS to run it" at the beginning and "Man, that really stinks" when you found out it was on Sunday. Well, though it may be hard, I'm sure you'll still find some way to enjoy your trip to Hawaii. ;) Have a blast!

I feel your pain. Why do so many great races have to be on Sunday?

P.S. M&M for the bling-bling record, I ran today...yipee!

I ran today too. A 5K on my treadmill. I even woke up early to do it. Thanks for the motivation, gals.

Oh,have fun in Hawaii! I would love to run a race there. You're not crazy. Or maybe I am crazy too and so I can't tell that you are crazy. :)
