Wisdom for Running and for Life

At my early morning exercise class yesterday, my friend Denise sported the shirt she acquired at a half-marathon run sponsored by See Jane Run over the weekend. On the back of the shirt were these words:

Here's to you.

The broad-shouldered, the knock-kneed,
the pigeon-toed, the small-breasted, the
wide-hipped, the long-waisted, the
short-legged, the stocky, and the skinny.
And yes, even the perfectly proportioned.

May you live long, enjoy dessert and
never stop laughing.

Blisters heal. Muscles recover.
Friendships last a lifetime.
High heels have their place in the very
back of the closet. If you can run a mile,
you can run a marathon. There comes
a time when you really need to replace
your sports bra. No, really. Consider this.
Only one person wins. Everyone else
should have a rockin' good time. Yes,
you can talk and run at the same time.
Chewing gum is the hard part.
A little chocolate goes a long way.

Be yourself.

There's a little bit of Jane in all of us.

You've gotta love a group who has this attitude, promotes a healthy lifestyle, and generously supports the community. Jane rocks!

Lottie, what wonderful and true words. I especially laughed at "A little chocolate goes a long way."

Hi Chris - glad that motto started your day well!

Dagny - I'm happy you enjoyed it. Gotta say, it put a smile on my face when I read the shirt, and I knew I wanted to share it with my AR friends.

Mary Kay, we would have loved this one -- at the end the organizers served a sip of champagne and chocolate! (along with the more traditional sports drinks and salty snacks)  Now there's a group that knows how to have fun.

Lottie, now that sounds like my kind of tee shirt!

Hi Lottie-

I thought this charming.  I enjoy a lot of different things and I'm not good at many of them!  That's OK with me!

Sara, it's all about self-acceptance and enjoying being who we are, right?
