I was watching a reality show yesterday and the description of this particular episode was about one of them running a marathon! Sweet...always excited to watch someone who I didn't know run...run a marathon. And then...as I watched the show...she was running a HALF marathon. No offense...I hope I don't offend anyone...because I'm not trying to do that. A half marathon is a big deal for anyone...It's a great distance and an amazing race to run, but it's not a marathon. Why do people on TV refer to half marathons as marathons? I was kind of frustrated watching the show. I was excited to watch the women cross the finish line and be proud of herself...I remember crossing my first HALF MARATHON finish line and it was AMAZING to feel like I accomplished something so big.
What are your thoughts? Does it bug you...or am I just in a mood?
