So the other night I was running down Rich Lane. Rich Lane is a pretty busy street for Blackfoot, but like most of Blackfoot, it doesn't have any sidewalks. I noticed that there were flashing lights behind me and I laughed to myself thinking that I was glad I wasn't the one getting pulled over. (I've been pulled over 4 times by the same officer on Rich Lane and never ticketed ~ ya, I'm pushing my luck.) Anyway, the lights finally passed me and to my surprise, this big police truck pulled in front of me and came to a stop. I thought to myself, "this couldn't be for me...what would the officer say...'excuse me mam, you are simply just running too fast'!"
Well, sure enough, the officer pulled ME over, while I was running, to tell me that I needed to wear something other than black to run in. What? Me wear something other than black? Doesn't he know that black is my signature color...that it is slimming, and that I'd rather be hit by a car than wear any other color than black?
Apparently he couldn't see me...I still think the real reason is because I was running to fast...It's a bird...It's a plane...It's...
Hi, I'm Erin and I'm new. Thanks Suzie for the invitation. I am new to running...trying to lose some weight, and so motivated by all of your successes. It just blows my mind to read about all of you, your races, your victories...and I am hoping to have some of my own. I ran my first race on Thanksgiving Day...I'll post about it soon. I'm cousins with Ang and Team Hanni that are also contributors of this site and I love them and thank them for setting the example. I have a 3 year old son and a 2 year old daughter. My husband and I just opened up two Anytime Fitness Centers and now I just need to get back in shape. I've always been healthy and fit...until my first pregnancy where I let it all go and haven't got back. I'm ready to set some goals and see them finished. Thanks again for all of your posts. If I am ever not feeling like running or working out, all I have to do is visit Marathon Mommies and I have a sudden burst of energy and encouragement. I love you all!!!
