Inspiration to run. Let me clarify that this isn't a New Year's Resolution I am defining. Just me, on a whim, deciding to get off my duff and "just do it." The day I happened to make a trip to Dick's Sporting Goods for a return was the day it happened. The sales associate asked if I wanted to look around before returning my item. I couldn't help but say "yes ... I think I'll breeze through." A recent article I had read immediately popped into my head, showcasing a particular style of Nike running shorts touted to flatter every figure. So, I tried a pair on. Fantastic, I'll take two. I also found a light-weight, long sleeve Nike shirt and zip up jacket.

I returned home and was, all of a sudden, inspired to run! It was an unusual 72 degrees out - so why not. Keep in mind, I am not a runner. My friends and family can attest to that. And buying new running shoes (they come in narrow!) in November certainly didn't inspire me to run then. But these were "running shorts" I just purchased, fashionable running shorts, and I felt the need to test them out running. So off I went - looking cute in my black top and black/white/fuchsia running shorts. I ran and I ran and I ran. It felt great. I ran more than half of my four-mile trek. In fact, I'd say it was more like 2.75 miles (not consecutive, mind you).

But here's the thing. As cute as these shorts were, "flattering on every figure" wasn't meant to apply to my pastey white, untoned, wiggly-jiggly thighs. I don't have nice looking legs to begin with. And in the dead of winter, with the off chance of a warm day, my legs were not meant to see the sun. And more leg was shown than I wanted ... because these fashionable running shorts continued to creep up with each step. I had to keep checking my back side to ensure I wasn't exposing myself. Thankfully these shorts provided great coverage from behind. However, it's not attractive to see shorts ride up your legs (my legs, anyway). I thought to myself, is it painfully obvious that I am new to running (though, I think I pulled off the gracefulness) ... out here with this great outfit that was clearly not designed with my figure in mind? So I did what anyone in my position would do. I went home and summoned myself to Billy Blanks' Tae Bo Ultimate Boot Camp DVD.

The reality is, it's time for me to get back into my routine. No more excuses. While I am not sure that I will ever experience the runner's high after months of running that my friends Suzie and Michel talk about, I am sure ... and very determined ... to look better in my new running shorts. And next time, I will remember to swipe my legs with a Tan Towel first! :)t-tipsP yle:ranmore excuses. While I am not sure that > 'll take two.
