I was sitting in traffic on my way home the other day and saw a bumper sticker on the car in front of me that read 13.1. And I thought to myself do people really need to advertise that? Full marathon sure, I will clap for you. Half marathon, that’s just Cross Country practice with a little extra leg work thrown in.
And then I thought, I should make a bumper sticker that says 0.5 and slap that on my car and see if anyone claps for me. Or, if they get confused and are like is that a new kind of sad, non moving race out there now? Just when I thought the Color Run was wearing out its welcome, people are paying to run half a mile? Guess I have to sign up now so I don’t die of FOMO and miss out on this 0.5 run all the kids are doing.
So if you see a car cruising down the streets of Indy with a 0.5 bumper sticker on the back, that’s me you see rolling, you feel free to hate. Because if you have a 13.1 sticker on your car I will judge you as #lame
