Place Your Bets


My FIL, BIL, Hubby and myself are all running the Dana Point Turkey Trot this year. My FIL thinks he can beat me. Before you place your bets let me tell you a few things first. First of all let me point out the lack of confidence he has in himself, he choose the girl to challenge, which are usually slower than boys. Second he choose a girl who just had a baby 4 weeks ago, it'll be 5 weeks and 2 days on Thanksgiving and I will only have been running for 3 weeks 2 days. He didn't choose to challenge Mike or Matt cause he knows he's weak and can't beat them, he choose me who in 3 weeks of training has logged 40 miles. He choose the girl who is super competitive and would run with two broken legs if I had to JUST to beat him. And my third point, he runs on a treadmill! AHAHAHA, he isn't even a runner!

Yesterday he texted Mike saying that he ran 3 miles in 30 minutes (on a treadmill). What a wimp! Today I ran 3 miles in 27 minutes with plenty of hills, pedestrians, and traffic lights. Did I mention that I just had a baby?

So, who are you putting your money on? Grandpa Richard OR me?

You are so hilarious and stubborn it cracks me up! I wish I was there to run it with you guys, then he would probably bet me the 8 months pregnant lady that he could beat me, that is even better odds. I think you got this one in the bag, have fun!
