Pre-Flying Pig Random Thoughts from Today's Wog

Monday, April 29, 2013

Haven't blogged in ages. Fell off the SparkWagon. Gained at least 15lbs.

But had a few epiphanies today while running in the rain trying to train for the Flying Pig in Cincinnati this weekend after being so sick from a stomach virus....

~ I may feel fat, but I'm not a XL again like a thought at Dick's! (got some body issues again) emoticon

~ It's not so bad to run in the pouring down rain! emoticon

~ I have an AWESOME running playlist! ( Since no one was around from the rain, I found myself singing out loud) emoticon

~ The body is pretty darn amazing. I didn't have to start back from square one to run again. Your body just starts running (or wogging, as the case may be) again. Who ever would have guessed?! emoticon

~ Running through puddles can be wicked fun. emoticon

~ Bon Jovi & Bruce Springsteen are still gods to me. emoticon

~ I'm nervous to run the relay with Renee, Kathie & Julie, but I do think I can do it. But if not, just Walk more! emoticon Not one SparkPerson will ever make fun of you!

~ I finally picked it. Cher's "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" from the movie Burlesque is my Power Song:D emoticon

~My Charity Miles App stopped working after 2 1/2 stopped working. I panicked a little. But then just enjoyed the run! I know I did at least 6 miles. GO ME!!

~ Was just going to stop running when the song, "You Can't Stop the Beat" from the Musical Hairspray came on. Just kept running (and singing out loud!) Just TRY not to run to it!

~ I just can't wait to see old SparkFriends & meet new SparkPeeps! emoticon

~ I haven't been wearing my Garmin since I started wogging since I don't feel like a runner any more after not running for 1 1/2 years because of plantar fasclitis issues. But when I walked past the mirror in the bathroom after my run, I thought, "Whoa! I DO look like a runner!"

Guess I can wear my Garmin again. emoticon

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner...but, wanted to say I'm glad to see you blogging again. And glad you are getting back to running, and glad your PF is better, and glad to see you enjoying the rain (now we know that came in handy for the Pig), and mostly glad I know you and got to spend time with you in Cincy!

Hugs & Love!

    Way to "pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again". I say once a runner, always a runner (even if it's wogging or jogging or sometimes walking) Enjoy the flying pig!

    This just awesome and I'm totally jealous since the Flying Pig is only an hour from me! I think you'll do great--you have such a wonderful attitude and a good beat cannot hurt ;-). Wish you luck! P.S. I wog like heck and I consider myself a runner. Miles and effort count!

    Have fun this weekend, and I hope you have fun with "some" Canadians, even if it's not me. I will be thinking of you SparkPeeps! Oh, and I forgot my music on my last long run, and I was surprised how often I was singing "The Highway Don't Care" by Tim McGraw (both inside and outside my head). Funny how running and tunes just go together.

If you listen closely you will hear me cheering for you!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
