my conscience is telling me to apologize for stealing these photos.

Sheila came up with an idea for Surf City course entertainment – play “spot the photog” and “do something crazy” each time we saw one. Unfortunately between the constant chatting and me focusing on not tripping over my dragging feet we failed to plan our team poses until it was too late.
Here’s how it played out…
being TALL Sarah has its perks – spotting race photographers and can’t-miss-em 10ft arms to name a few
Early 90s pop dance eludes me, apparently
Or were Margot and Sheila drafting off me? Rude
the last 2 were pretty tough on poor Sheila
haha no spring left, sorry
Somewhere along the homestretch I set out on a mission – told the girls,
“if I can’t get a decent f’ing official photo this way, it’s just never going to happen.”
So I slowed my pace, tried to put a little extra air under my Brooks and a smile on my face, and did my best to not look like the last 12 miles tore me up.
And I’ll be damned, it worked!
Who’s going to give me $39.99 so I can ditch the watermark?
A few other things Surf City photos taught me :
I’m flicking my right toe out again. This has always been the first step of fatigue form break-down, and resulted in some gnarly runner’s knee in the past (and I’m sure it’s not great/a source of my tibialis issue). Chi running suggests a pelvic tilt and strengthened medial muscles (inside of leg) will help correct & even me out?
– anybody else have this issue? how’d you fix it?
Major <3 for the Bum Wrap. The compression shorts didn’t move an inch and I got a lot of compliments on it which made me feel good because even if you feel fat and slow you can still look awesome. Only wish is for a pocket – the iphone-in-a-ziplock isn’t a real keen accessory.
* UPDATE * new Bum Wrap has a zipper pocket! and is available in grey!
And in closing, an old news statement about how awesome runner friends are and HAVE YOU EVER SEEN RUNNING LOOK SO FUN?? xoxo
Happy Friday — Kick ass and have fun if you’re racing/running/tv marathoning this weekend. I mean, whatever.
