3.  Forgot to take off my reading glasses before running the Cleveland Marathon.

4.  Ignored natures call (#2) before a long run….ran 21 miles with the “clamp” on.

5.  During my 2nd run at the JFK 50 mile, I noticed a girl off the trail taking care of “business”  not sure why I did it but for some reason I said “Hi.”

6.  Went for a run after having spicy chicken wings for dinner….got it done but it hurt.

7.  Completely jumped out of my skin, a number of times, for a snake that turned out to be a stick.

8.  Hit the wrong button on my GPS watch then tried to pace off the bike MPH data.

9.  Failed at learning the skill of a successful a snot rocket….I gave up.

The totally dumbest thing I’ve done while running.  Waited until I was 30+ to get serious about my running.  I got a late start but the time was right for me.
