weird quirk: once I ran a marathon, like, the 26.2-mile race. Before that, people would sometimes say, "Oh yeah, I ran a race too." After that, they say, "Oh yeah, I ran a 3-mile marathon one time." It really stuffs my tailpipe!!

@trappleton I have also ran a marathon, but over the past few years I switched to smaller races due to not maintaining the training.

But my partners family calls all my 5 and 10ks “marathons” and I always have to correct them...
