I set out this year to finish the CFA program and finish my first marathon. As of yesterday, the marathon goal was officially accomplished. Did not hit my goal time, I had stomach issues and ended up having diarrhea on the course But I pushed through and still crossed the finish line. Lots of room for improvement doe.
Also, I would rather run a marathon every weekend for the rest of my life than be forced to endure one more year of CFA exams
Anyway, congratulations on your marathon and on completing the CFA program.
Don’t joke about “running wipe”. Some people actually do that. Also, far more commonly, people pee while running. I am proud to have never done either of these things… Running 1 minute faster is not worth the permanent loss of dignity…
Well, I was talking to some triathlon guy about training the other time, and he starts talking about training to pee while on the bike. Apparently, some degree of focus is required to overcome this hurdle. First of all, I’ve fortunately never had to pee while on the bike and even if I did, I would probably pull over. Second, this is horrrible, right? Because if you pee on the bike, it probably flies backwards to the guy behind you. Also, I am rethinking how people go around at the beginning at admire the expensive bikes. It seems that the more expensive the bike, the more serious the owner is about biking, and thus, the more likely that it is covered with pee.
idk, crapping yourself is really just a problem with the elite runners…most of em train enough were it isn’t an issue. there are usually bathrooms every mile or so. If you’re a rec runner…you should be able to locate a potty to use. But then again, sometimes the storm comes on strong with little warning.
