Every time someone hears that Wes and I run, they make some assumptions about our health, fitness, and general awesomeness. When they hear that we run marathons, they make even more assumptions about those same things, sometimes elevating their opinion of us to that of real athletes.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. No, really, come closer so I can whisper it in your ear…
We have no idea what we’re doing.
Seriously. We get on a training plan, and we run until the Nike GPS lady tells us that we’re done. Then, we show up for a marathon and spend the entire time wondering if we’ll actually see the finish line. Because, again, we have no idea what we’re doing.
That said, we thought it would be fun to chronicle our method, our process… our dumb luck in preparing for a marathon. And so we’re taking the Dopey Challenge and beginning training for it now, along with starting our very own Running Blog/Vlog on how it’s going. We’re only two videos in, and there’s already been talk of chocolate milkshakes and bacon. Clearly, we’re the fine, fine athletes that you believe us to be.
I think it would be better to call this blog the “Any Idiot Can Run A Marathon — See?”
Feel free to join us!
