I love this blog. You have to check it out. I agree that fun girls live better but sometimes I forget to be fun. I aspire to live out loud – to show up in my life, unashamed and unafraid. I am showing up out loud to run the Colonial Williamsburg Half Marathon in this outfit:
Sensible ensemble with a banging skirt. Not exactly fun but I’m working on it. God, do I wish I could run in panties like these:
I wonder if anyone over 40 can pull it off. Probably, my friend Beth. Probably my new blogging buddy, H!. Tomorrow I am pulling off my 8th half marathon after 6 weeks of training. My long runs went like this: 6, 8, 10, 12, 10, 6. This is a very abbreviated plan compared to my others but I feel strong and ready. It’s the yoga and the core work and my awesome posse of long running buddies. I can’t wait. I dreaded my last half in November but came out smiling. Tomorrow I am fun runner girl. Just wait and see. Although no running in panties – not yet anyway. I might end up with that banging body I dream of and then I’m letting it all hang out.
Williamsburg, Virginia – here I come. Prepare for fun.
What are you doing tomorrow?
