"You probably won't even finish." (Father)
"Can I give you beer somewhere?" (Brother)
"I don't know why you're doing that." (Grandpa)
"People die doing marathons." (Grandma)
Silent shaking of the head (Twin Brother)
Wow! Thanks for the support guys! Love that "you can do anything" boost you're giving me to my difficult and challenging goal. Now if I die running my marathon I'm not only going to be dead- but humiliated- my family shaking their heads when I drop at mile 22 in their I-told-you-so sentimentality. Instead of R.I.P my grave will say, "If only you listened you wouldn't be dead."
Whatever. Now I want to kick the marathon's ass even more to prove to my family I can do it. And live through it. Without drinking a beer.
