My weekday warrior ready to do battle.
The weekday warrior is a different kind of athlete than the weekend warrior. A few years back, my husband got a free vest after signing up for 4 events that were organized by a race committee. He likes the basics that the vest provides; shelter in a storm, a bit of warmth or a bit of air conditioning when needed. A good investment indeed (sorry, I couldn’t help myself). Those that know him well, know that without a doubt, a weekend warrior he is not. He is about as far from being a weekend warrior as I am from being Christie Brinkley. The man has not driven his car in three weeks. He has covered more than 600 miles in these weeks commuting to and from New Haven powered by pure human ambition. Next time, I’ll ask the race organizer to make a special vest for him that says “weekday warrior”. That would be a far more accurate testament in my opinion. He says that he feels strange running in his “Weekend Warrior” vest on a Tuesday morning at 4:30 am in the rain. Although today is Saturday, so (technically) while he covers the distance, he can wear his jacket with pride. Now all you weekend warriors, get out there and run!
