A Marathon, Flip Flops, and one Badass

Two things about me. First one. I am addicted to my flip flops. If I lived in California I would most likely wear them year round. As soon as it gets warm I buff my feet, pull out the flip flops, and let out a sigh of relief. I wiggle my toes, my feet begin to turn just a shade darker after the long 9 month intimacy they had with my socks. I will be bundled up with a jacket and scarf, but as long as my feet do not freeze, you will find me in my flip flops.

Second thing. My term for someone who amazes me is: badass. Impress me, and most likely you will make it to my “badass” category. Just remember the list is short. However, I think I have just found someone who takes my use of badass to new levels. Keith Levasseur ran the Baltimore Marathon on Sunday in flip flops. Flip flops you ask? Yes. Flip flops. He ran it in 2 hours, 46 minutes and 58 seconds. Again, I tell you a badass. He will be filing with the Guinness Book of World Records for a marathon in flip flops.

And I thought I had a full week at work, blogging, running, and personal life changes. I guess I have work to do to catch up with Keith. I need to run my first marathon, then I can decide if I ever want to try to run one in flip flops. But, Keith, you can keep your world record.
