- I have to eat less food so I don’t gain 15 pounds (I’m already up 7. Opps)
I can’t wear my booty shorts
- People avoid talking to you about running “Ohh, can I talk about this with the injured
boringrunner?” No excuse to stare at booty shorts
- I have a buildup of snot in my nose that is no longer socially acceptable to snot rocket out
- I've had to cut back my use of the word "Fartlek" much more than I would like
I’ve had a number of great resources come my way. From waterproof iPod cases, first hand accounts on the benefits of aqua-running, and even sample workout routines – fellow runners have been more than willing to help... even if only to lend an ear. I didn't expect it, I certainly didn't request it, but it is great comfort to know that the running "community" that we've created is one that really does care.
So, in my (surprisingly limited) spare time because I’m not running, I’m going to try to do the same. Heck, I might even do it when I am back to running! Kidding, I totally will.... but I can’t promise that I won’t have booty shorts on while I’m doing it.
