Eight words that sum up my running mood this past year:
Who wears short shorts?
I wear short shorts!
I was informed 2 days ago that I had made it onto the Runner’s World forums. Someone started a category titled “Short-shorts Runners.” (Here’s a link to the forum.) Their first post was this:
That was Borsch and I at the Joe Plant 5K!! And OF COURSE they look funky on me, because that was the point! You all know that I’m always out to get people to smile and to have a great time - I’m not trying to start a clothing trend.
Well, as I scrolled down, some WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING that I only know as “texasbman” had replied to that first image of me. Here’s his addition to the forum:
I have no idea who “texasbman” is, but thank you for setting the record straight regarding my hideous short shorts! And in case anyone is wondering: No, the short shorts will not be making an appearance at Grandma’s Marathon. They are great for 5Ks, duathlons done as a team with Matt, and 1980s parties...
