When you are a runner you get the insanity. If you are not a runner you simply find runners insane. The girl reminds me of my brother who though as supportive as he is he simply does not get it. He went with me to the Disneyland last half marathon and at 5 in the morning he was asking the same questions and comments. What is the purpose of this race if you are not going to win? Why would they give you a medal if you did not win, I thought winners get medals. This is what you do for fun? Needless to say I am trying hard to rewire his brain and convert him and drag him away from the dark side. One day he too will be a great runner and have someone yammering in his ear those silly questions at 5 in the morning.
