Thursday is the worst day of the week....Let Jillian Michaels make you cry day.
|I was super excited for the butt whippin'....and talking about butt whippins'... I'm gonna give Randee one for not telling me I was wearing half my protein bar on my upper lip when she took this picture!|
|Randee and Jillian are having a love affair, I have no idea what this look is all about.|
In a moment of insanity I ordered this from Amazon....
|So now I get to spend tomorrow morning with Jillian again. She just looks evil on that cover staring at me with that "I'm gonna hurt you" smile.|
|Just to remind you...we have Little Brittany, Raging Randee, Ms. Thang Talia, and Moi.|
|How many of your sober non-running friends are doing this?|
|How many of your non-running friends are getting Starbucks at 5:00am on a Sunday morning instead of sleeping in?|
|How many of your non-running friends wear knee high socks and short sorts?|
|How many of your non-running friends will roll in the mud with you?|
|How many of your non-running friends will watch the sun rise with you on Sunday morning?|
|How many of your non-running friends will not wanna slap you when you whine about losing yet another toenail?|
|How many of your non-running friends will let you take 100,000,000 pictures of them with no makeup, unfixed hair and sweating like no tomorrow?|
Pounding the pavement, mile after mile, leads to a lot of talking. Sweating together breaks down barriers. You're honest. You talk about things you never thought you would. You might pass gas. You might have to poop. You might need to vomit. There is no judging. You just do what you have to do to finish the run. Then over coffee you chat some more, as you enjoy your runner's high of knowing you completed what you started. Then you repeat this tradition week after week.
This does not mean you don't still love all your non-running friends.
|You gotta have someone to do this with....|
No really. The moral is I love my running buddies. I love my non-running friends. The things we do together are just different. The things we talk about might be different...unless they want to talk about my bowel movements and missing toenails.
Now, that's enough of that. Get back to enjoying your Thrilling Thursday!
