Marathon Maniacs


I really admire people that loves to run and even join marathons. I think they have the determination and endurance to complete a race and also proud in giving back as I know most love to do it for charity. It is a known fact that when joining you also have to shell out money for the registration. Some people would even go over and beyond for it and those that are really into it will go to other places just to run the marathon. Our kindergartner's teacher said to me this morning that she will go to Canada and run for a marathon their in June. 

When hubby started running a marathon he discovered the Marathon Maniacs organization. He checked it out and then wanted to become a part of it. Like any other organization they do have requirements. They have certain level of membership. Hubby belongs to the first level, the bronze level. In order to qualify for this you have to run 2 marathons within a 16-day period or 3 marathons within a 90-day period. 

In 2011 when hubby learned of it, he ran 2 marathons in a 2-week period. So it qualifies him to be in bronze level. He registered for it and he got accepted and now he is a proud member of the Marathon Maniacs. The organization just had their 10th anniversary yesterday and during the race they were also having program going on and even had a party last night. Hubby wanted to attend but decided to just stay home and rest his sore feet and painful knees.

The name of the organization sounds so unusual for me to, especially on decathlon race like this, but when I read your entire post, I can say, what a clever name because people who joined a running marathon were absolutely crazy all about it.

Thumbs up for your hubby for being in a bronze level now!
