Let me say that again.
My NON-RUNNING husband is running the Reach the Beach Ragnar Relay.
So far he’s run twice this week. The last time he ran was jogging point-to-point when I paced a friend in a half marathon in June. He does not like running. At all. Ragnar is on MY race bucket list.
What the hell.
What’s worse is that he can just say yes when a buddy asks if he can run as part of the team. My husband is a swimmer. An excellent distance swimmer (he’ll do a four hour swim for fun). So his aerobic capacity is ridiculous. He could probably beat me in a 5k, but can’t in a 10k (I know because we ran one a year and a half ago and I beat him by 2-3 minutes, and I’m much faster now).
But it’s not freaking fair that he can just sign up on a whim for a race like Ragnar in which he’ll run three legs for a total distance between 14-22 miles. He’s not even trained! (And he won’t run with me now that he’s getting some runs in or ask my advice either. Insert frownie face here.)
My marathon is less than 4 weeks away, so Ragnar is not an option for me. Yep. I’m pouting.
Will it be awful of me if I make fun of him when he inevitably isn’t able to walk down the stairs for several days after his race?
