The Running (Wo)man

I signed up for a 10K.
I haven't been running in over a year.
I could tell you all about the fact that I like being healthy and how exercise keeps helps me sleep better thus putting me in a better mood. All of these things are true but let's be honest. I have a muffin top and I'm tired of separating my shirts into the two categories of "ok" and "should only wear while standing." So I bought a new pair of running shoes and set a goal to run the Fargo Marathon 10K in May.
The other morning I snapped on my awesome and extremely stylish reflective belt started my run just before dawn. And by run I mean extremely slow jog where most people driving by would wonder why I was walking so funny. It was a long and tedious and painful run where I tried to turn around at my halfway point. This is where I fell in front of a school bus full of kids and left them wondering who was the lady who stole a crossing guard belt and flashed us an extremely white butt crack due to the slightly too small running tights. She seems fun.
After Tyson was born I ran a 5K with my mom and two of my sisters but this time I thought I needed more of a challenge.
Turns out the challenge was to find time to exercise, shower AND sleep occasionally...all whilst trying to keep my butt crack covered.
