As most of you know (and I apologize to those who do not) I have a pretty big obsession/hatred for the dreaded camel toe. This would be why I have never owned a pair of ridiculously overpriced lulu lemon pants, as I have NEVER seen a pair that do not pay tribute to a girls lady parts. This would also be why I have a SERIOUS issue with girls who wear tights with shirts that do not cover their bums/parts. I get that tights are comfy, I love wearing them too, however, I consider it a serious offense to my eye balls that I have to see the shape and size of your business… I did not ask for a side of vagina with my morning paper/Starbucks.
While I understand that sometimes it is an accident or perhaps even an act of ignorance, we need to stop this growing trend and unite against camel toes everywhere. While I may get a laugh once in a while out of these ladies misfortune, ultimately I am cringing on the inside wishing this foul occurrence was not associated with one of natures most loveable animals. That said, you are probably wondering what this has to do with me and this post. I recently purchased a pair of cold weather running tights that are extremely ‘body hugging’ and if I am not careful, they have the tendency to give me a SEVERE CT. However I, unlike most, am aware of this dreadful issue and take caution to cover my parts as best I can. If that means wearing two pairs of undies, so be it.
Okay, now I am going to get to the real point of this post which has everything to do with marathons, as suggested in the title, and less about camel toes. I am quite possibly one of the laziest human beings on this earth. I would rather eat my own fingers than engage in physical activity. I hate the world of team sports, I don’t understand it, and I hate the feeling of my insides exploding because I tried to run for a full minute without stopping…. this is how out of shape my poor body is. SO, to rid my self of my slovenly behaviour, I have decided to participate in a 10km marathon in December. My beautiful roommate, who is MUCH more in shape than me, had this brilliant idea to do this together, so we can be one another’s motivation and to finally get in shape. We have been running off and on throughout the week for the last 3 weeks roughly and yesterday we ran 4km without stopping. For me, this was HUGE! I mean come on, I used to limp, feign a stomach ache, hide in the change rooms, use ANY possible excuse throughout high school and university to get out of being physical. I was so proud of us, and I am actually excited to beat our distance and time on our next run. We still have a full month to continue training, and I have full confidence that we will rock the shit out of this marathon…. or at least look fashionable while we are being taken to the hospital because we passed out 2km before the finish line…
No really. We can do this. This is the first time I have been serious about getting in shape and staying in shape. I owe it to my body and soul to not be a lazy sow who eats fast food and chocolate and lays in bed all day every day. SO, having said that, I will keep you posted on our progress and until next time I have left you with a picture of us in our running gear… yes it’s matching and yes, we are ridiculous.
Okay so the picture wont work, but I will upload it when I get back from Ireland!
