She didn't want her husband to feel bad.
But wouldn't her keeping on going, despite cramps, running a lot slower than she had hoped, but refusing to quit - actually make him feel worse? Oh, no, I forgot...
RH: How was your race?
SH: That race was awful, I was in so much pain, but I refused to quit and so proud of myself for finishing. How was your race?
RH: Exactly as I'd hoped. I quit, but god loves me more than you. You kept on running for yourself and your pride and turned running into an idol. What is wrong with you?
SH: I'm so sorry. I'm going to work on quitting. I'll do better next time.
