Does this marathon make me look fat?

Does this marathon make me look fat?

It was 2001. Exactlyone year and 3 days after quitting smoking, a pack a day of true Cowboy Killers, Marlboro Reds noless. Most of you don鈥檛 know this aboutme. I smoked for years. I loved smoking. In high school we actually had a smokinglounge....

I used to run when I was in my 30's, then took up smoking when I turned 40 because I had heard so many good things about it. Well, no, actually it was a ploy to get my wife to stop smoking. Every time she lit up, I would do the same. I figured that if she saw me with a cigarette dangling from my lips, she would feel guilty enough to put hers out. Wrong. Instead of quitting, she welcomed me as a new member of the club, and bought me a cupholder ashtray for my car. Before I knew it, the damn things grabbed me. Coming up on my 3,650 pack this year. Yeah... good judgement was never my trump suit. Great post, Shelley.

Neil Smith absolutely loved this. Guess I'm putting Dublin on my 2017 running list. :) I've only done a handful of races but my experience has been as you said, the crowd makes the race. Just a kind gesture, a wave, a smile, someone shouting our your name /number, or just the presence of people alone can give you the mental strength you need in that moment to keep on truckin when all you really wanna do it give up.
