What is something you have done during a run/ride/swim that you swore you would never do?

  1. #dailymission What is something you have done during a run/ride/swim that you swore you would never do?
    I have no shame - there is very little I have sworn I would never do.

  2. #dailymission Took off the running shirt in public. Today it was to wring it out...

  3. #dailymission I never thought I'd wear colorful and tight-fitting clothing on the bicycle. As a non-cyclist a few years ago, I thought it was weird for people to do that. Now that I am riding ... read more

  5. #dailymission I walked during a race. Never thought it would happen. Philly marathon mile 25, although calling it "walking" is generous - it was more like "swaying" or "... read more

      :( aww... poor you. My heart broke a little for you when I read that race report. I still giggle at the ape visual, and I'll remember it on Sunday too, I'm sure. It will give me both strength and a smile. We all get spanked from time to time but you've shown yourself and the world that you don't stay down for long. Wow, Ben! I'm being sentimental! Sheesh.

      My friends tell me that during the 2011 Johnston's 1/2 I could be heard singing loudly (at mile 9) Kiss by Prince. Ha-Ha!

  8. #dailymission Actually it was prior to a run -- but I'd never have guessed I would EVER spend $100.00 on a pair of shoes ...

      I'd be grateful to convince my wife to spend no more than that on a pair of shoes. And I'm not talking running...

      I cannot agree more. During my military training, I did a lot of running (this was a decade ago) and I pretty much thought I'd never be a runner at that point because I associated running with pain, discomfort and boredom. Now I have more than 6 pairs of running shoes that I circulate regularly!

      I couldnt image ever spending that much on shoes but since I started running 18 months ago, those shoes make all the difference. I have two pair of Nike Lunar Glide 3's and I've asked for pair number 3 for Mother's Day. Most comfortable running shoe ever. And the 3rd pair? Just to wear out and about. :)

      Totally agree, Wilt and, if you've been at a number of marathon starts, you will have witnessed some "interesting" and "creative" ways to do so.

      Wilt...Pooping is fun. I have a great pooping story for you involving the turning stone golf course and a 10 mile run.
