Here's a mere five runfessions, just to whet your appettite....
1- I don't wash my hair everyday. Currently, my hair is at its longest length (since I was in 7th grade), and I'm really loving the many options I have for those days when I don't wish to spend 20 minutes (sometimes longer) blow-drying it. I have gotten pretty clever disguising the "day after" hair with clips, headbands, and messy up-do's. I don't want to be one of those who sports the exact same hairstyle 24/7 for several years at a time anyways.
2-I have a love/hate relationship with running tights. I love how toasty warm they make me feel...but I hate the self-imposed paradox I have on the appropriate way to wear them. I think it looks like something is missing when you wear them on their own. (Really, does anyone wear "street" tights alone, without a skirt -or something- covering their backside?) But, running tights also look awkward with shorts/skirts covering them...so both options leave me questioning my fashion sense. What's a gal to do? I have decided to just go with it, and usually wear them "as is." Maybe doing so makes me look more like a real athlete (a gal can hope)!
5-Sometimes, during the first few miles of a race, I find myself wishing for the race to just be over. As much as I enjoy racing, I don't consider myself a "racer." Quite honestly, sometimes I just don't feel like giving it "my all" for fear I may not have a decent finish time that will reflect my efforts. Of course, when I run a difficult race, I always learn something from the experience.....but I always seem to forget that little piece of wisdom in the midst of struggle.
How about YOU? Anything you'd like to add? Any dirty little secrets you need to get off your chest and share with the cyber world? (I'm listening.....)
