Who lined up with the RUNNERS? Who?! ME, bitches!!!
Know why? BECAUSE I AM ONE!
Crossing that line was one of the greatest moments of my life.
For those of you arriving late on the set, it's been a long three or so years for me. I've done a lot of readjusting, a lot of getting real about myself. I started running late last summer, just a little at a time (and I mean a little at a time) just to find a good life-groove. I never thought that I would do this whole "distance running" thing, especially FOR FUN. Totally would have never believed I'd be doing this shit daily.
But I am. Running is my new religion. (Note: OK, maybe supplementary to my original faith).
I'm sure sometime in the future I will write some pithy Chicken-Soupy essay about it because I always do that introspective retrospective shit, you know? OK, just kidding - it's already in the works. Like you didn't know.
I kid you not, kids (heh heh heh)... this running thing has changed my life.
EVERYONE ON THE ENDORPHIN BUS! NOW!
An extra-special shout out to KW and MA for the training dates (I love you girls - you did me wonders) and to SY for cheering me on and enduring my narcissism (we'll do a 5K together SOON!).
Peace and good vibes,
mom of the year (AKA She Who Runs As A Goddess)
