HOWEVER that does not mean my rear end is not more jiggly than ever, nor that my stomach does not seem to flop over every pair of jeans I own.
So what is a girl to do? Well, if that girl has a supportive husband, they sign up for a 5K together. We have run together a grand total of ONE time in the six years we have known each other, so Matt is taking a bit of a risk signing on with me as a running partner.
As for me, I am also taking a bit of a risk, Matt is a track coach. And Matt is bossy. It's like I can actually smell the arguments coming.
Since we have never run together, we knew we had to pick a very special race, and did we find it? DID WE EVER.
This is no ordinary 5K people, this one has obstacles. obstacles like this:
GULP. I am in so much trouble.
We are signed up to run the northeast course, along with a bunch of Matt's college buddies. Shockingly none of my female friends want to run! I wonder why??
There are some serious perks though, I can't forget to add that. There is free beer (!), a warrior helmet (sweet!), and the typical t-shirt.
Oh also pulled muscles, blisters, scratches, possible concussions, humiliation, and embarrassment!
On second thought, maybe a jiggly rear isn't such a bad thing...
