Ironman Snobs

As I am preparing to run the Twin Cities Marathon on Sunday, I can't help but think about next year and the fact that I won't be able to run this race (or at least run it well) because I will still be recovering from IronMoo.

In fact, A and I were just "discussing" (read: arguing) about the schedule for IronMoo weekend 2010. When I explained to her that participants would need to arrive on Friday for the race on Sunday her response was, "Well, that makes absolutely no sense." I really think she is coming around and getting in the spirit of the whole thing.

Then this morning CS sent me the following email:
I just thought of something...

Next year at this time as everyone is getting ready to run the TCM, we can be total Ironman snobs and say stuff like, "Just a marathon?" or "You mean you're doing just the run portion of an Ironman?" I plan to use these lines a lot with Mike [CS's husband.] :)

Which brings me to a new addition to your list, Todd. Although this one can only be cheered at a marathon of course...

"You got this! [It's] just a marathon, I did an Ironman a few weeks ago!!"
Of course this "encouragement" is only fully marginally effective if you aren't on crutches, in a wheelchair or embroiled in divorce proceedings stemming from your "successful" completion of an Ironman.

Use and abuse those lines...next year. You will have earned them!

I will be sitting there yelling those words of non encouragement with my new prosthetic vagina, since mine will have been left on my bike seat.

there's that "vaginal humor again"!!

Roo said...

Wait- they make prosthetic vaginas? Apparently Mary and I use the same bike seat.

I'm thinking I might need to do Twin Cities next year just to hear how much of a snob you can be.

By the way- I saw your twitter but I don't do that crap so I'm commenting here. I like my clients to get their massage Wed. if they're racing Sat., Thurs. if they're racing Sun. That way I can work on the tight spots without worrying about them still being sore on race day. just my preference.... And if you're getting one after- I recommend wait until at least the next day.

Roo - Oh, I can out snob the snobiest. I mean look at my profile picture. A dickie, v-neck sweater and a pipe - oh and that haircut - it oozes snobishness like a saddle sore oozes "saddle sore juice."

Charisa said...

Ewww - saddle sore juice - ewwwww! Ok, on to your snobbiness - this will work the first year. Then of course the following year you have to up the ante - say an ultra ironman or some ultra run.

Where is the race report?!!! Your fans are waiting!

The link didn't work. That is why it sucked. No shot at Deidre at all. I wouldn't read her if I didn't enjoy reading her. I wouldn't read you either. A coward perhaps, but the trails I have walked have not been easy. I loved the picture.

You are funny, it is why you are on my list.

Best Wishes!!
