Not sure how I got talked in to blackmailing myself, but I guess anything in the name of "a good laugh" is acceptable. If someone judges me and calls me "weird" after seeing this video....meh, I've been called worse! Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind....right? My Running Mamas group always has contests/competitions to keep everyone motivated between races, because after the "high" of a great race wears off, there always seems to be a myriad of excuses not to run. Cold weather, hot weather, rainy days, sick babies, I-just-ran-a-marathon, and too much chocolate cake seem to usually fall somewhere in my top 10. In fact, I've been using the I-just-ran-a-marathon excuse for over a month now.
The competition this week is called "The Inaugural Ball". You see, Heather, the group owner of Running Moms has passed the torch to my bff Tara, the Ultra-marathon runner. So, in light of this situation we are having an Ultra-marathon competition! Everyone, is running OVER 26.2 miles in a week! ...but you also get points for dressing up. Umm....I'm a total slacker...I've only run 2 miles since my marathon on December the 5th...so I figured I'd just rack up my points on the fashion portion of the competition....that's really more my thing anyway. Please note, in 1994 (senior prom), I thought this dress was gorgeous!!!! eeeek!!!! Dax kept saying, "Mommy, you're so shiny"! hahahaha!!!
