So as it turns out I reached Half fanatic status, at least the reqs awhile ago and just didn’t know it. I’m currently in Uranus status. After our back to back halves at the end of the month that moves us to Jupiter status I believe.
I went ahead and signed up paying the lifetime membership option of $150. At $55 the first year and $15 each year after that, it didn’t like it would take long all things considered to save money. Assuming I don’t have a heart attack and die or get mauled by a rabid cougar while running. In which case it was a waste of money.
It’s step one toward becoming a Double Agent which ever since we first saw the shirts at Route 66 run last fall I’ve wanted to be one.
This year’s T-Shirts (no offense guys and gals) doesn’t have the usual bug eyed guy/gal logo on it and for me that’s a good thing. Since I don’t have any history with the group or their logo, which they explain in detail how it came about and it’s a interesting story, the artwork is just not to my taste. It seems like that may be the case with a fair number of people since they ditched the logo on this years merch.
Honestly my #runningwife and I were only going to buy one shirt, the one with the smallest version of that log on it prior to now but I’ll likely buy two or three shirts to have to run in now that I can get one that fits more my personal tastes.
Anyway I’m a half fanatic now, working my way toward Marathon Maniac hopefully this fall with a Full and a 50K within 2 weeks of each other.
