I Am Not A Runner

...but I can't seem to give up the idea!

Some of you faithful readers remember me talking about running here, here, here...and probably a few other places I haven't found.

My husband? He is a natural runner. But he hates to run. Oh the irony. He is actually running a race across the state of Florida this weekend. Yep. He's running three legs totaling over 15 miles in just over 24 hours. Has he trained for this? Not really. He runs two miles just about every day at gym as a warmup. Only takes him 15 minutes. BLAH. But he will be fine. He's just naturally gifted like that.

I, on the other hand, ran my 2 mile loop again this morning. I don't have a watch to wear when I run so I looked at my cell phone before I walked out the door, and when I walked back in.

Oh yes. Two miles in 24 minutes. Told you I'm not a runner.

AND I got a blister.

Life just isn't fair.


  1. i have the same idea in my head, but im so not a runner either~! A sprinter yes, distance? heck no

  2. I don't think I am much of a runner either. That or maybe I am just A.D.D. when it comes to exercise in general. I get soooooo unbelievably bored unless I am running outside. And to top it off I am convinced that I look awkward when I run.
