WIMTSW--You suck.

It's that time of the week for Chief's What I Meant To Say Was or WIMTSW...

Subject: Half Marathon... after telling a "friend" that I was training for a 1/2 Marathon she said, "Oh! I'd never do one of those again! It was so hard and the worst experience I've ever had!"

Me: "Did you train for it?"

Her: "Well kind of. I did a few small runs before and then did a 10 mile walk the weekend before so I wouldn't wear out my body."

What I said: "Yea I know it will be hard but I am going to do it no matter how much I hate it when I'm done, but I hope that I don't hate it because I'm training for it so I hope it will be a good experience and I'll be ready for it."

WIMTSW: "That LAST thing someone wants to hear when they are putting themselves out there to do something and train for it is how HORRIBLE it is. Seriously, leave that info to yourself. Nobody wants a Debbie Downer when they have HOPE they are going to survive!!!

and I wanted to say...

You SUCK."

Okay... Hop on over to Chief's. Just click the pretty picture above and see who else is playing!

Gross-who would ever say something so horrid to you when you're putting in a serious amount of work to accomplish something so huge?! I mean...sorry. But in my defense-I trained for mine:)

Good luck!

Personally, I think marathons are ridiculous. That is what I would want to say.

You go! I'm too scared to even let my brain think half marathon. I like running....just not that much!

That's like when you're pregnant and people feel the need to tell you all their horrible birth experiences. Especially after they find out that you do natural childbirth.

More power to ya girl!! One day I'll be fit enough to run a marathon. Good on ya ;-)

Lil Bit said...

Best of luck in the marathon (fun meme-y thing, this WIMTSW).

Thanks for your recent visit to Sage's mask over in my Masquerade room. =)

Chief said...

This is a form of the One Upper! The deal breaker!

Like when you say your pregnant and someone says "ooo... I have terrible pregnancies"


Coachdad said...

I have done two full's easy. You'll do fine and want even break a collarbone!

mother goose said...

congrats! I have the most admiration for marathoners! I used to be a runner but I had a knee blow out and it never healed correctly after surgery, running is painful. It could do with the extra weight. YOU THINK?? LOL

The Garden of Egan said...

You have inspired me .... to shut my mouth....and NOT tell anyone that I'm going to do a 1/2 this summer.
Thanks for the advice. Yup she does suck!
