Way to go! i'm not just a dinosaur, I'm an OLD dino!! Don't know if i'll get to running, but you encourage me to at least do my daily walk & bike ride! Thanks, and the best of luck to you!!

My inspirational quote from Spark People:

Nobody ever climbs a mountain, gets to the top, and says: "I should have just been content to stay where I was".

Oh, I feel right at home as I read about everyone else's running styles. I can relate! I'm getting ready to run my only race for the season, and I can't wait to be done! If you need some comic relief, here's a blog post on my adventures, "Run Like a Turtle" rnforhealthyliving.com/?p=131

I am not fond of running and when i read your post, I laughed so hard. My husband said when we first met in college, I always ran funny in our physical ed classes. He says I looked like wimpy when I ran. So when he saw our daughter run, he said she is just like you.

I only started working out diligently these last years. I may have been a lot thinner then (because of my youth) but I am more fit now.

Your post made my day!!

Thank you for this! I was just thinking this weekend "I run like an elephant". Or a hippo. I can't decide. But my SIL runs like a gazelle....and then there's me. But you are right...it doesn't matter because we are out there moving it!!

So glad you have come to a point where you are more comfortable in your own skin--this post reminded me of an episode of Friends (which I thought of often when I first took on the challenge of running) when Phoebe invites Rachel to go running with her--Phoebe, of course in her own unique style, runs with arms and legs flailing, and Rachel is embarrassed, until later when Phoebe fills her in on why--she doesn't care if it looks crazy to others--she's enjoying herself.

You are hilarious! But I do get your point. I tried running last summer and I'm about to give it another shot with the C25k plan. I'm not sure what I look like when I run, I just know that it's probably a slightly mess! Keep up the good works. emoticon emoticon
