Who Wears Short Shorts?

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

I reached a milestone in my running career yesterday - no I didn't set any personal records or complete my first marathon, yet. I wore my first pair of running shorts.

Gasp!

OK, maybe not such a milestone for many, but for me, someone who has always been critical of my big ass large legs, its a pretty big deal. As I continue to shed pounds I'm also consciously shedding my insecurities and simply letting the small stuff go. It's ridiculous to wear long pants in the summertime while running - and it's too damn hot!

Me, post run, rockin' my new shorts (that sweat is hard work people!)

Oh, and yes, I loved the shorts; and the hurdle I jumped over to wear them.

That is FANTASTIC. I was in WalMart yesterday shopping for a pink bow to wear in my hair for Race and Relax (I know, I know, who wears cute hair accessories while running 3 miles). Once I found the bow, I header over the workout gear. I wanted to buy some shorts but I knew that I'd scare everybody with my thunder thighs so I opted for some crop pants. I know I'll be hot as hell, but maybe that'll make me sweat more! See you Saturday.

Good for you, Mama! Looking great!!! You should SO rock those for Race & Relax and shut those insecurities right up as you get your Sexy Runner on!

Um, I am jealous of those legs for sure! Amazing ;) So are you running like mad now? I was going to do a huge relay run with some girlfriends but they bagged on it so now I have lost my motivation to run, I need to find it to drop some weight!!!

Look at those cute legs!

Yay for you! As an over-40 gal with over-40 legs, it took a while for me to be comfortable w/ running shorts, too. It's amazing how MUCH a body part can jiggle! Ugh. :)

Yours look great! (shorts AND legs)

TGIF! Stop by the Turtles blog and share your fave TOP 5 list, if you get a chance.

Also, I think this is your big weekend in ATL, right? If so, have fun!!!

HUGS from Orlando!

YOU GO GIRRRRRRRRL! That is truly amazing. As someone who agonized over what the heck to wear bike riding on Memorial Day because she doesn't even OWN a pair of shorts because her legs are too big, I totally recognize the milestone.

YAY.
