Besides packing, this was also a day of answering questions about the race. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Acquaintance: So in your marathon this weekend, you're running 26 miles?
Me: (Knowing she doesn't understand but not wanting to get into it) Uh-huh.
Acquaintance: But there's also swimming and biking in it?
Me: That's right.
Acquaintance: So how far is the run part?
Me: Well, the run is the full 26.2 miles, and there's also a long swim and a long bike ride before it.
Acquaintance: How far are the swim and the bike ride?
Me: The swim is 2.4 miles, and the bike is 112.
Acquaintance: 112 what?
Acquaintance: (Grasping chair for support) NO!!!
I swear "112 what?" is an exact quote.
