I'm Faster Than Matt Damon!

(photo courtesy of people.com)
I just read that Matt Damon ran the 10K in a relay triathlon this past weekend at the urging of his brother. He ran it in 59 minutes and 54 seconds. Um. The last time I ran a 10K (last Thanksgiving) I ran it in 58 minutes and 32 seconds. Ha-HA! I beat Matt Damon! Can you stand it???? Of course, he didn't really know he was going to be competing, and I had been running for a while, but still! I beat Jason Bourne, dude!

But if you want to hear something even cooler than that, go and visit Nap Warden. She is one badass chic. She just ran in a marathon this past weekend in freezing ran and blasting winds and finished DESPITE getting hypothermia. I'm. Not. Kidding.

Now go. Congratulate her!

Pretty cool, girl!!! :)

I must say that I haven't got the bug to start running, BUT after reading your beginners post, it did inspire me to begin my "walking" again! I used to walk every day (did this for about a yr.), but then had to stop. Soooo, now I am inspired and got my neighbor to walk w/me and we are starting TOMORROW!!!! I'll let you know how it goes!!!!
Thanks, girl!!!!! :))

GoteeMan said...

You.Are.Amazing. Was anyone chasing you, or were you just running for fun?

Hmmm... maybe there's an opening on a remake of "Alias" or something totally new you could take advantage of your speed in... I can totally see it. Totally.
So.Not.Kidding.

my husband ran his first marathon shortly after oprah ran hers. his goal was to beat her time and he did. but kudos to you..i think you're more impressive ;)

Nap Warden said...

OK, does that shout out make me sound cool, or crazy???

I'm faster than Matt Damon too!

Kathryn said...

Nap Warden- It makes you sound ultra cool! And let's face it, you could kick both Matt Damon and my butt with one leg tied behind your back (wait, does that even work?).

Krystyn said...

Okay, both of you..well, all three of you are crazy! But, I'm glad you beat Matt Damon! Yeah, I'd brag about that, too!

kirsty815 said...

WTG Woman! You need a button that says I kicked Jason Bournes a$$..lol Love Matt Damom, love your blog.

Nissa said...

*sigh* Not even possibly seeing Matt Damon in a race could make me run. I'd go out & root him and you on, though! Are there jobs open for the water tables?

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
