GOOF Award of the Year - "Me"

After the post I did earlier today the anal-engineer kicked in and I decided to reconfirm the number of days between the Tulsa Route 66 marathon on 11/18/07, the Honolulu marathon on 12/09/07, and the Houston marathon on 1/13/08, and I get a total of 56 days, not even close to 90 days, whew right......well there's more to the zaniness....

Then a very feeble light bulb started to shine and I decided to count the days between the Lewis and Clark marathon on 9/16/07, the Tulsa Route 66 marathon on 11/18/07, and the Honolulu marathon on 12/9/07, and I get a grand total of "84" days!!!!!!

OH MY GOD....

I qualified as a Marathon Maniac with the Lewis and Clark, Tulsa Route 66, and Honolulu Marathons inside the 90 day window to become an entry level "Bronze" Marathon Maniac.

Would someone check my numbers, please...I can't believe this.

I'm still going to Houston though. This is where my true street running started in 2007 when I ran/walked the last 6.5 miles of the Houston Marathon last January with my brother. I'm still really proud of his effort and will always know and remember he did the first one first and it's because of him that I'm running like I am today.

Don't ask me to check numbers. However, I can confirm "maniac" status and I think you qualify Randy.

Randy said...
