Confessions of a Mommy on the Run…

Running

Three things I have learned about running…

Granted, I have learned way more than just three things about myself, about others, about things I did not want to happen, about awesome and not so awesome moments…. but, these were the three on the tip of my mind today…. Now, excuse me while I try to find a discount code for a Flipbelt.

1. I have commitment phobia.

Nowhere else in my life do I have commitment phobia, except when it comes to running. I will go for a run with anyone, if they can bring themselves to slow down to my turtle pace, but I rarely run with the same group more than three times.

2. Looking ridiculous has become a new kind of awesome.

I say this because my running belt looks very much like a fanny pack and I am totally okay with that. I would rather wear and run with my fanny pack on than have my arm rubbed raw from an arm band.

3. Did you say illiotibial band?

Not only do I know where it is but can have an hour-long discussion on IT band issues to the point where most people wished they never asked me.

What have you learned?
