I wanted to post a photo of me in my shorts so I got my BFF, David to take this the other night. Arrgghh! When I saw the pic, I nearly died. I look so fat. Check it out, it’s like I have a bumbag under my tee-shirt, a bumbag of lard. Yesterday I felt very fat and depressed but today I’m over it… almost. It’s just a photo, I don’t look like that all the time. What can’t be cured, must be endured – although I’m still working out how much can be cured because that beats the hell of enduring.
Today’s big excitement, for me anyways, was the Spring into Shape run #2. Woohoo, go me – I finished the 8 km run without requiring one lick of medical assistance. Sadly enough, that’s like some kind of record.
I met heaps of people off the ausrun forum before the race, all very intimidating with their masterful atheletic prowess. I am such a n00b around them. One day I want to look like a runner so that people who don’t know me can look at me and know I run, even when I’m not running.
After the race, in the goodie bag line, I heard someone call out my name and turned to see the spunkalicious Michelle.
As for the run itself, I’m not that happy with my time. Without going into all the issues with my digestive tract, I had some queasiness so had to stop off for a toilet break plus drop back to a walk a couple of times until things settled down. It felt like I had a big, heavy rock in the pit of stomach! Still I knocked quite a few minutes off my time from the last run so I can’t complain too much.
Finally, here’s a tip for any Buffy fans – Big W have the dvds for $32 a season a season. Woohoo! Plus if you go to the one in the QV building, the PA in the store stuffs up and keeps making fart noises. People who are juvenile and unsophisticated, might find that pants wettingly funny… I know I did.
