    I'm subjected to endless "running " talk. Driving her to races. Having to listen to endless talk about PRs and elevations and race times, it never ends. She's addicted. Any others here have stories?

    Better than sitting on the couch getting fat.

    has she started shitting down her legs as she runs, yet? apparently that is the hallmark of a great female marathon runner.

    Lots of those nutty fitness moms in my area. Sadly, their obsession with fitness plays a part in many divorces.

    i remember when i lived in so jersey: all the wives were divorcing and marrying each other's ex-husbands. it was musical spouses. i dont think communities need an excuse to do this.

    Obsession with somewhat pointless activities is a form of sublimation, isn't it? I mean running? C'mon. It destroys the body too. The jostling and impacts, etc. But I suppose we all do something. Divorce her. End rant.

    My ex used to run them competitively.. mostly sub 3:20's (Boston, LA, SD, LB, Chi, Mpls etc) and the worst being 3:40 (stuck in the surrounding crowd getting starting on the Verrazano). She faithfully used a documented trainer's running regimen that involved X amount of fluctuating miles per day for maybe 8 weeks prior to each marathon. She was a huge PITA in general, but to her credit just trained and ran, never becoming obsessed with it as a topic of conversation, nor bragging about her times afterwards. She also ran a lot of 10Ks in between them.

    this has happened. Also, her running clothes must be washed separately. Because of the urine.

    We got a sporto down at the barn. Nicest "girl" ever. Even though she no longer has periods, run her tits off and has a dude haircut. She's all about nutrition and supplements. I can see this would make you nuts.
    She's not gay. Her bf is a hockey sporto. I see him totally checking out the girlies.
    But we're all weird in our own way. I was totally into polo when I was young. Now I'm totally into weed.

    I can see how it'd be really annoying to have to be so deeply involved in someone else's obsession that you are not involved in or interested in. But it sounds like you're very supportive of her despite your feelings about it and I think that's nice and speaks to your character.

    Be glad she is not addicted to ice cream and candy bars.
