I always made it a habit to run early in the morning or later in the evening when it was dark out. I guess I was hiding from the world. Felt embarrassed that people would see things jiggle when I run? I never wanted to run in my neighborhood either for fear of running into someone that knows me.
Well this year…all that’s a changing!
I’m ready for my spotlight…Cue the sunshine!
Ahhh…feels so good running with the warm sun shining down on me!
Look at me world I no longer want to feel invisible…I want to feel invincible!
Is my body exactly where I want it to be? Nope
Are there still some jiggly areas? Yep
Do I care that my neighbors or the world see me run? Nope
Bring them on! I know some may jeer but most will cheer. They obviously know that I lost a lot of weight and I heard from a few neighbors that ppl thought I may have lost the weight with surgery. Well, duh…I really can’t blame them for possibly thinking that cause they never saw me exercise. I was like a ninja exerciser…I would duck behind trees to avoid people! Really! And this all hit me last night on my run home!
I didn’t want to go to the gym because it was so beautiful out but already logged my elliptical and kettlebell time so, I had my hubby drop me off at the gym and then I would run home after my workout! Finished ST, kettlebells and hopped on elliptical and panic started to set in…omg, it’s still going to be bright sunshiny when I’m done here. I am sweaty mess and ppl are going to be looking at me running. Haha…I know now that I write this out…it sounds like such a silly thing to worry about!
Well, my run home was awesome! Several cars beeped at me (cause they thought I was hot…not cause I was blocking the road haha) AND even though it may have been some creepy old perv…I still smiled!
And I have to comment on all the weird items I ran past last night…
•plastic chicken holding (I think) a baseball bat
•dead bluejay (eeeewwww)
•VHS tape? Do ppl still watch those?
•Decorated hard boiled easter egg
All these items were all in the same stretch near a train track. So what weird or interesting items have you seen while running?
As for my title…I also found $5.00
So, my run in the sunshine was truly a payday for me!
I felt invincible when I arrived at home!
Do you want to feel invisible or invincible?
