its better to look good…

then to run fast?      

well, thats where i am at anyway. working an evening shift tonight and its time to hit the showers and get ready. did do a 3.44 mile “wog” today at the alarmingly slow average pace of 13.99 min/mile.

must keep reminding myself from whence i have come this year and i still have over 2 months to improve before the half marathon.

my goal – and this was my goal actually before i had my surgery – was to finish in under 2.5 hours (that would be an 11.45 av. pace). i also thought i could aim to wog the first 60 seconds of every mile and jog the balance of every mile. i am not sure this remains a possibility given the current state of my physical fitness, but, i am feeling weirdly optimistic that, if i really keep on top of things, i maybe could do it.

in any event, i, wanna-be-fashionista of the world, only just discovered that – SHOCKING!!!- running shorts are actually excellent to run in! number one, they have built in panty action, a pocket AND (best part) are fitted enough to not look crazy, but not so fitted that, as i lumber along, my wiggling everything is out on display! who knew??


UPDATE: WTF is a 13.99 MINUTE mile?


  1. I had posted a similar thought on my blog using practically identical photos of myself but the “World Internet Decency Police” contacted me and pleaded – for humanity’s sake that I take it down. They actually only requested I removed the photos of myself as they registered a 9.2 on the Dichter scale, but what good was the text without the pictures?

    Seriously, we’re glad to see you setting challenging goals for yourself.

  2. Your challenging goal inspires me!
