Post Card

Yesterday I got a pleasant phone call from my wife. She wanted to tell me I got a post card in the mail. It was from an old running friend I met back in the late 80's. He wrote to tell me about my half marathon race results. His message was so good that it made my wife chuckle and reminded me of something I'll share later. Anyway I have to quote some of it for you.

First Master, 3rd Overall, Cleveland Half Marathon! You are fast, fast, fast...No doubt because of good training and clean living and a supportive spouse! Congrats to Annie!

You see, "congrats to Annie", not to me, but to her for supporting me during my training and not getting too upset with me for missing family dinners, not changing the washers on dripping faucets, the list goes on, or what gets her the most is when I walk in the house dripping with sweat and having a sweet smell of B.O. So yes, congrats to my lovely wife for putting up with me and my crazy training schedule so that I can have the opportunity to race well.

Got to go my To Do list is getting long. Don't want to ruffle her feathers for slacking off.

Great post! It must be nice to have someone who supports you completely. 3rd overall for a major race is pretty amazing.

Great job! Yes, we owe great thanks to our significant others that support us through all this craziness!!
You're both lucky to have each other!!

Hahaha! Sounds like a good friend that knows how to stay on your wife's good side.

I sometimes joke that I train so much because it prevents me from doing housework. :)

Maybe you shouldn't run so fast, it will take you longer to complete workouts?

Cliff said...

Is this why you run so fast (compare to the previous comment)? So that u can go home and do your chores?

Great motivation...

Cool! That would make my day too, that's one great friend.

I tell you, I am a wife and I am not agree with that. Support is a very relative term.

Congratulations to you!

And life is nicer with a supportive partner!

I say congrads to BOTH of you. I have been (mainly) on the support end for years...both with my husbands journey through his illness and with my (triathlete) beau in recent years, and it has been my pleasure! You and your wife are blessed...to support & appreciate each other in everything you are passionate about. I wish that for everyone out there training!
