Runners are a different breed of people all-together. I realize that many non-runners look at runners like we are crazy! We run at strange hours. We run and push ourselves to crazy mileage. In the rain, snow and even ice. I get it. Sometimes, I know personally, I haven’t used my best logic when training. For instance, when we were training for our first marathon, I had a surgery 4 weeks prior and then one week after the race. My doctors thought I was crazy and maybe I was or it was just dedication (and there is a very fine line there). Training for my second marathon, I ran through tearing my medial quad on a 15 mile training run not stopping till I was done. My doctor flat out called me stupid. Ha! He is also a runner, which was the only reason I permitted this comment to flow from his lips.
