See the above photo? That was taken in 2007. Back before I figured out running was a bad idea*.
You see, the month that I ran this race (my one and only 10K), I also started this blog…naming it “Eat Live Run” to combine my “passions” for eating, living and…running.
Nowadays, I really just eat and live with a strong emphasis on the eat.
But can someone please tell me yet again that running really is a bad idea?
Like, it was a bad idea last year when I pushed myself too hard and got shin splits so painful I couldn’t walk?
It was also a bad idea when I sprained my ankle the first time.
And, oh wait, it was still a VERY bad idea yesterday, when seduced by the lovely California sunshine and cool Fall weather, I decided to go for a little jaunt over at the local state park. After running for, like, four minutes I took a complete nose dive over a huge rock and sprained my ankle…yet again.
I wish I could tell you I was kidding.
So, um, yeah….I think from now on I’m just going to stay in the kitchen where I belong. Frosting cupcakes and mixing cake batter never hurt anyone, right?
It’s safe in here.
The outside world scares me.
*you might like to run, and that’s cool. you might actually be coordinated enough to do it, unlike myself. If that’s the case, you should totally go for it.
