Saddle bags. Some of you know the reference, it's the extra thigh/low butt attaching itself upon our legs like a growth. Unless you carry a Jennifer Gardner frame you can relate in some form or another.

I'm not a tall person, I'm actually rather short. I make up for my shortness by carrying a "tall"'s almost the female version of Napoleon's complex except I'm a bit less into taking over the world and more in tune with my insecurities. Speaking of lets go back to why I bring up Saddle bags.

Here's where my shortness becomes an issue for me. I've had a couple kids and well my weight would be appropriate for a 6ft supermodel. I am neither 6ft or a supermodel...perhaps you can relate?!

With my short mom complex I've decided to take a new route. I'm really good at working out as long as I have NOTHING else going on. If anything else could possibly distract me well, it wins over exercise. So I'm taking a new approach.

What is it? It's a marathon....Stop laughing. I kid not. I'm not crazy, I'm going to start with a half. If you know me you know I DON'T run! Why? because I'm prejudice against runners. That and I don't believe I or anyone else should be exposed to the ways in which my body moves when at a faster than stroll pace. But the saddle bags MUST go. Oh and word is that my h.s. reunion is around the corner.

Things I will NOT do while taking on a runner persona:
  • Purchase short shorts (if something is so short it has to be repeated well...count me out)
  • Buy running shoes over $80 (do we really have to purchase new clothes every time we try something out?)
  • Begin eating power bars (unless the words chocolate or caramel are involved)
  • make protein shakes (I don't do shakes unless Ice cream is an ingredient hence my chubby issue)
  • place a raw egg anywhere near my mouth
  • Begin using words like "BMI" or "Best time"(runner jargon is highly annoying)
  • blue tooth while running (who are you people? and how do you do that?)
  • run in the middle of the street (I don't have a death wish)
  • run in a sports bra (again, I am aware of my insecurities and I have my sanity still...sort of)

good for you! i have quite a few friends training for one right now...i wish i had the time...can't wait to see how it works for you!

I talk WAY too much about absolutely nothing, but it's my own way of getting to what actually matters. Too analytical but at times it comes in handy. Enjoy hearing peoples stories. Get bugged by stereo-type people. Bad speller. Secretly lazy. Quasi OCD. Carry a constant frustration for the marginalization within America. Sarcastic. Suffer from (UL) aka uncontrollable laughter...never know when it's going to hit.
