The twenty-four-hour-race friend47

Before the start of the Jersey Shore Marathon, Dave Peabody, who had run in our twenty-four-hour race, came up to me. I asked him, “Your wife is allowing you to run? She doesn’t mind this time?”

He answered, “Oh no, she is very happy. She is here supporting me and helping me. Today she is smiling.”

Quite often his wife used to object when he ran races. When he ran our twenty-four-hour race, he didn’t tell his wife beforehand that he was going to do it. He just left her a note. But then she came to the race and watched him.
