Knee-Jerk Reactions

July 7th, 2011

When I tell people that I’ll be running the 2012 Antarctica Marathon, I get a variety of responses, like these direct quotes:

Casual Facebook Friend
“Your doing the what in the where? For penguins?”

Acquaintance (Not fully versed with my adventurous side)
“Are you out of your ever-loving mind?”

Close Friend (completely unfazed)
“Well, that’s about right.”

Fellow Runner
“Ooh, the peninsula has solid elevation change, right? Will you need Yaktraks? Is this a Boston qualifier?”

My Wife (Supportive/Resigned)
“Sigh. How long will you be gone?”
