It's His Feet
July 15, 2017 11:44am CST
My husband left last night at 6 p.m. to run a 24-hour marathon. The 24-hour race started at 10 p.m. He took along a tent, sleeping bag, headlamp, water, snacks, and whatever else he needed for this event. He called me at 8 a.m. this morning, and he told me he has 6 more miles to go. All runners are fed great meals during the race, and my husband said the food was amazing. Despite two feet that are killing him, and only 3 hours of sleep, he said he will finish those 6 miles. I told him to just come home, but he is bound and determined to finish that 31-mile goal he set for himself. For a guy who is age 68, I do admire his determination.

Your husband is very determinate I can understand your worries. If I were you, perhaps I would have a GPS on him secretly so that I would know where he was all the time. Or I might just ride a bike to follow him to make sure everything was fine

Your husband, he's a sportsman like my father. My dad was an avid of soccer (a sport, very popular here in Italy). Unfortunately in 2007, he got sick of prostate cancer. It was operated successfully. But he could no longer perform any sporting activities. Today at the age of 72, he goes to recreational circles, looking for happiness "in the glass" (Of course not drunk!). I'm sorry for him
