When a sidewalk is available...one must run on it

Some days I shouldn't leave the house...

 

Today was one of them


I talked myself into getting up early and joining KC Running Club's Sunday Runday group run this morning and this is what I get.


I mistakenly wore a light colored t-shirt with my 2 year-old (washed SEVERAL times) hot pink sports bra. This pink dye is relentless...It bled the first few times I wore it; and then I washed it 4 billion times hoping that we could be friends again. WRONG...


Now I can never show my face again at a group run. The worst part is that I didn't even notice until I got home and was getting ready to take a shower. I just pranced around like the cool chick that I think I am...


...all the while people are looking at me like I am nuts! Jokes on them though because they didn't even realize that my sports bra stained my skin as well. Being super sweaty is fun ;)

On top of looking like a total doofus out on my run today...I also got pulled over...while I was running...by a cop...in a car.


So there I was minding my own business, running through a quiet little neighborhood and running against traffic...like you're supposed to and all of a sudden a cop car drives up and motions me over to his car....WHAT? He tells me that when there is a sidewalk available I must run on it. 

I was horrified...I don't break the rules...let alone laws! It got me thinking though...is that a law? I mean seriously...the cop car was the first car I had seen in miles...it wasn't a busy street? But being the rule follower that I am I spent the rest of my run dodging back and forth across the street when the sidewalk would end on one side and pick back up on the other? Who designed these sidewalks anyway?


Whew...it was quite the eventful morning...but luckily I am now home safe and sound (and no longer stained pink) and despite my shenanigans, I managed to get in a great 13 mile run. During training, some runs are great...and some are terrible. Luckily, today's was awesome! 



Post run I rewarded myself with my BioSkin compression shorts (my legs love me for it) and all the delicious foods!


I might have even gone a little overboard with the compression gear...what can I say...it feels so good!

Other than my run I haven't been overly productive today (and don't really plan to be)...but I did get around to hanging some new decor that we bought at a craft show yesterday...


I got both of these items from my super talented co-worker/friend's booth! Isn't her stuff adorable?

Alright, that's all the productivity I can handle for today. Now I am off to the couch for some lazy afternoon television! Hope you enjoy the rest of your day! 


I'm prematurely linking up with Tara over at Running 'N' Reading for her weekend update. I  mean...you saw what I was wearing...chances are I won't be doing anything else too exciting today...especially if it requires me to wear real pants ;)

  1. I first thought you'd spilled Koolaid or something on the shirt - until I saw the back…and I was like, "Huh??!!" I would never have dreamed that a bra would do that!! Hey - we all know that the KC Running Groupies are a forgiving bunch….!!! And that's just crazy about the cop…I'd never heard of that, and I run in KC all the time. Huh. Now I know. ;)

  2. Oh, my gosh...I can't even get to the sports bra stain because I am stuck on this police officer telling you that you "have" to run on the sidewalk if there is one available. WHAAAAAAAT?!? I need to find out if this is a "rule" around here; if it is, I am in DEEP trouble, Heather - ha! I mean, some of our sidewalks are more dangerous than running in the street because they are in disrepair. Good grief. YOU run on the sidewalk, dude - GAH! I can't get over this. I've never thought about a sports bra bleeding onto my other clothes; that sucks. I'm sure you can return to the running group; they just love you more now. :) Thanks so much for linking up with the blog, and I hope your week is off to a great start!

  4. Wardrobe malfunctions...gotta love it when no one bothers to mention it. That is so weird that the cop told you to be on the sidewalk!

  5. I've have pink socks stain my feet and shoes but never a bra, and I do wear a hot pink bra. This is so weird because I had a cop stop me on my run yesterday! I thought he was going to bust me for u-turning in the middle of the road...in front of his car. He was just checking on our neighborhood. Still weird. Sidewalks are dangerous! Uneven.
