My Advice To You Is To Have Nothing Whatever To Do With It.

The husband is an avid cyclist who actually races on a team. I am a runner who is on a team. I participate in events. The husband competes in events. There is a very clear delineation between those two words during our each of our sports. There is also a clear boundary between runners and cyclists.

This is important to know. It's imperative, because the husband decided he would go with me to pick out new running shoes. This type of activity entails a trip to a running store. Just running. A store full of runners, joggers and two-legged racers - not two wheels.

As the cyclist husband held open the running store door for me, he quickly and in pro-ninja stealth mode mentioned, "you know . . . . . this is like throwing vampires and werewolves together."

What a great comment! I feel similar when I get caught in a place where people talk about car engines, exhausts, alloy wheels...

Kind of like when someone who only uses Windows PCs goes to the Apple store. It could be war. ;-)

Hey! Just like Twilight. Is your husband a secret Edward Cullen fan?

So what does that make my hubby? He's a runner and a biker, does that mean he's Michael from the Underworld movie? I could get with that.

I was going to ask where that puts duathletes and triathletes, but since Rosie Posie got there first, this comment is somewhat redundant. Sorry.

Ugh, yeah, dedicated running stores. You'd run out of wooden stakes pretty quick.

My husband and I run relays - to the fridge. No running shoes needed.

vampires and werewolves ... (= Your husband is a nerd. Not that that's a bad thing. It's cute.
