My favourite from when I did the Portland Marathon: 'it's not sweat! It's just your awesomeness coming out!' Kept me smiling for miles.
Another one that made me smile was when I was out running in some pretty horrible rain, and a bus driver who passed me almost each day, stopped to tell me he admired my dedication... Which kinda put a halt to any thoughts of asking for a lift LOL.
Hey Steve - I think I do remember you passing in a bit of a hurry lol. Well done on catching up so spectacularly though - don't know about almost sprinting the first three miles - sprinting the first three yards would prob have killed me lol. What a fabulous run though - it was beautiful! Gorgeous weather, lovely route and what a fantastic team of Marshalls! LOVED it! Slow or not, I really enjoyed this run....almost as much as I enjoyed finishing it lol. Guess I'll be seeing you next year
And you Steve - hope you have a good one too. I'm also itching to get my gear on and get going, but more so I can get the humiliation over with LOL. I think I'm 243, but can't imagine I'll be too easy to miss - look for the slightly chubby one at the rear in the bright pink breast cancer research running vest - that'll be me Really looking forward to it though. See you there maybe. Have a fab run everyone! x
I really appreciate your friendly reply. To be honest, I'm pretty happy doing the distance, but I'm just so slow lol - a complete slowpoke. Though I must confess, my aim with my running is more just to see how far I can go rather than how fast I can do it. As long as I don't walk I'm happy with what I achieve. I guess someone always has to come in last - I'm just bracing myself for the reality of being that someone this time
