Finally, after years of saying, “I want to run a marathon,” I can now say, “I ran a marathon.” It was brutal. San Antonio was unseasonably warm with 94 percent humidity. Training in Marin doesn’t really prepare you for 94 percent humidity. It sucked. A lot.
And, just like with the running thing – a person who runs six or seven (even eight or nine) minute miles isn’t going to like running with me. Parents who consistently put their kids in time-out may not like my parenting styles. But, is one better than the other? Who knows?
