But this is the conversation between The Motivator and I tonight:
ME: I think I need to train for a marathon.
JAMES: <shocked look, jaw dropped>
ME: If I train for a marathon, it might help me get faster in my half-marathons.
JAMES: Let me write this down… “Let it be noted that on January 31st, Paula said she wanted to train for a marathon.” This way when you’re saying ‘why the f*** am I doing this‘ in about 8 months, we can review my notes and know it’s because you said you wanted to.
I didn’t say I wanted to run a marathon, just train for one. 😀
