I started running around 8 months ago, at which point I couldn't run for 3seconds without blowing outta my arse. Now I run 5k, 10k and half marathon distances and running my first marathons next year. thing is, when I started all I got was smirks and rolling eyes from my wife and told I'd never stick at it, that is was just a fad, I kinda proved her wrong on that one and she's generally supportive nowadays when I'm doing an event, but thinks I should be doing something different when I'm training...like cleaning the house, washing etc. Now I've mentioned doing triathlon and the smirking and rolling eyes are back, what I never get is told is what a great idea, just that I can hardly swim, why would I want to do triathlon. Anyone else get less than full support? I've entered my first tri event but haven't told her yet as I'll get the tuts and rolling eyes.
