I'm Officially a Runner

I've never really felt like a runner. Well... not since high school anyway.

I was unsure of what I could do to change that. I thought maybe if I ran a certain number of times each week, or a certain number of miles without stopping... that I would suddenly feel connected to the sport. Month after month passed with nothing.

But then it happened last night.

I was getting ready for bed and I noticed something on my stomach. It was a rash. Well... TWO rashes. The only thing I can surmise is that my sports bra must've rubbed my skin during yesterday's 5 mile run.

And that was it. I have had my first experience with chafing. I am now officially a runner.

Ooh, girl, you need to get you some Body Glide! That's not the kind of "badge" you want to wear.
Congrats though on feeling like a runner!

Is that what makes a runner? who knew? in that case, i'm an olympian! i second the body glide, although someone just told me today about "bag balm". I thought they were calling me names.
