Public Apology.

After my "wah wah stop posting your mileage" entry yesterday, I feel I owe my ever-so-diligent running pals an apology.

(Deep breath.) Here goes.

I'm sorry. I shouldn't let my jealousy get in the way of my awe at anyone's ability to run more than three miles. Perhaps one day I will run far enough that it warrants posting my mileage. Because, let's face it, your grandma can probably run as far as I usually do. It's not entirely my fault: when I put my mileage into my running log, it laughs at me. I feel shamed. However, I realize that it is not an excuse.

Yeah. I'm a jerk.

But I am sorry. So keep on doing how you do. You guys really do kick ass, and I will allow that to inspire me, rather than throw a brat fit.

  1. I totally relate. I can't run farther than I can throw a rock without thinking that I may be on the brink of death. And I have all these cute, skinny friends who think it's "encouraging" to want to go on runs with me. I have to pretend I have a broken ankle or something, which is becoming a less legit excuse every week that goes by.
