Ummmm, what? As soon as the words were out of my mouth, I wanted someone to slap me. And I am not one for violence. In fact, our house is a no spanking, no slapping, no hitting zone.
I don't have abs like Shalane Flanagan's, a booty like Kara Goucher's or legs like Paula Radcliffe's. Because of running, I do have a smaller booty, sweet definition in my legs and am working on the abs. But what really matters is I am blessed with a strong, healthy body that allows me to be a runner.
And for the record, I do look like a runner. If you've spent much time wandering around the running blogosphere or have lined up next to hundreds (or thousands) of runners at the starting line of a race, you've seen proof that I look like a runner. And you look like a runner.
So if those words ever come out of my mouth again, someone please slap me. And if I ever hear one of you say you don't look like a runner, watch out!
