William and Kate - Marathon Edition

I have a running goal, blogsters.  

No's not an elusive PR, or to run 10 marathons in a year (although a PR would be awesome!).  My dream is to get the most searched...most talked about embrace the coolest sport in the world. (Long Distance Running, of course!)

Possible Race Photo of Kate

As we all prepare for the wedding of the century, I can't help but think that all this hoopla would be a lot cooler if we were speculating not only on what designer would make Kate's dress but also on which brand of shoe Kate was going to wear after her wedding:  Mizuno or Brooks.  

I am convinced I can make Kate love running as much as we do and here's why:

Bike AND Cell phone?
1)  Kate is already active and clearly coordinated.  On the left is Kate riding a bike while on her phone!  Talk about coordination....

2)  She clearly has the patience and determination of a long distance runner.  Girl waited for like 9 years for a ring!

3)  She is accustomed to crowds.  I am certain that the paparazzi in London are nothing to deal with after you've gotten through the lines for a port-a-john  at a poorly planned race.

London Marathon 2012?

4)  As a fashionista herself, she'll be pleased to know that there are an array of fashion choices available such as the running skirt, the compression sock, and the arm warmer.

5)  Unlike yours truly, Kate can't take a bad photo.  For example something like the race photo monstrosity to the left would never happen to her.  

6)  For her, doing race calculations in kilometers will make perfect sense.

7)  I want to see if her hair is still perfect after running 17 miles in the rain !

That's all I've got!  Hopefully she is a reader of my blog (likely) and has been convinced.  :).
On a slightly different note (if you made it through this ridiculous entry), "Schwaggle" has a pretty good deal this time - $45 for $85 at!  They have running shoes online so it's a great time to get a good running shoe discount!

I'm off to Central California tomorrow to run this (Avia Wildflower Triathlon Relay):
Should be a lot of fun may be more of a tempo than a race for me, but my semi competitive nature may get the better of me :).
Peace out and good luck to anyone racing this weekend!


  1. Good luck this weekend! BTW love this post, great!

  2. This is seriously brilliant. I was LOLing at my desk, for real.

  3. Tears in my eyes funny! Love it!

    Have a great weekend!!!

  4. Awesome goal! I love the Kate in a Race Photo! And I bet she would look just like that while - not a hair out of place.

  5. Yes you are totally right, she would be a great marathoner!
