I thought this was pretty funny. I was talking with JZ, telling her about the latest doctor visits, PT, how I was feeling, etc. I told her I was increasing my running in line with doctor approval; she seemed to agree with that decision. I then asked what she thought about me doing a 5k in a couple weeks, "for fun". I mentioned several of my athletes were doing the Tybee 1/2 and there was a 5k associated with it. I thought it'd be fun to do. "What do you think about me doing it?", I asked.
Without missing a beat, completely deadpan she answered, "Not a chance in Hell."
I laughed into the phone, saying ok. There was no discussion about it, just her blunt response. She is always so direct and isn't swayed in the slightest by my ridiculous notions, even the things I truly want to do. It makes me laugh how she just bitch-slaps me, without hesitation, right back into reality. I wouldn't ask for her advice if I didn't expect to take it. So no 5k.
