Nipples (of course!)
(for lack of a better term) Groin area (trust me on this one)
I wonder if I could purchase a tub of Glide and just dunk my whole body in it so that I don’t have any chafing issues.
We also discussed remarkable effects of Gu.
So, BBJ, Elsie, Alberta, and I showed up for and ran the Sue Kren 15K this morning. I was happy about the overcast morning since we ran part of the race on Fiesta Island. I ran on FI once last summer in the sun and it was brutal. Alberta told me that she found it peaceful...My biggest goal was to get off Fiesta Island before the race walker who was kicking my a$$ did. (I did, but he finished the race ahead of me...grrrr).
Really, my personal claim to fame today is that I almost beat Alberta to the finish. Of course, she hates me now, and she’ll never, ever allow me to be that close to her in a long run again,
‘cuz she’s so darn competitive...AND in all fairness, she’s had bronchitis for two weeks... but I’ll take whatever I can get. (Sorry Alberta...I just couldn’t help myself). I tried to sprint to the finish to beat her, but to no avail...although I think it’s funny that I call my finish today a sprint. Next time I’ll make sure I have Madonna or Britney to finish to.
Elsie again flirted w/the boys as she ran and finished the race, even though she didn’t think she could do it...just think, we ran more than 1/3 of the marathon today.
What was up with the roses at the end of the race? I didn’t get that.
For those of you who weren’t there...don’t worry about not having a bib that says “Sue Kren 15K.”
My personal hygiene question this week is: Do any of you use any sort of make-up remover/face cleanser to-go wipe/thingy/product? I’m looking for something to use during the week when I run after work. I don’t like running in makeup, and washing my face w/ really cold water (why can’t we have hot water in the restrooms at Helix) is annoying. Any ideas?
My runner’s protocol question this week is: when sweat is running down your back and then to your butt, is it OK to scratch? When is it not OK? Hmmm, maybe that’s a personal hygiene question too.
Finally, my response to Edith’s email about her decision (after puking for four days w/the stomach flu) to not run this morning is that you athletes crack me up. If I’d been that sick for four days, I wouldn’t even consider the question (should I run today?), I’d just stay in bed...and wait for someone to bring me saltines. Hope you’re feeling better soon. Betty’s coming back from Dallas today. She might want to run with you tomorrow...or you can call my bro-in-law Dave. Then, maybe you’ll have dreams about Dave, Jamison, and you in pink shorts w/bows...can’t wait to hear more about that!
PS..Sorry Elsie, no photos of you (yet) on the RnR website for me to pilfer...
