What does running or riding or swimming or walking or whatever you do athletically give you that nothing else in life does?

  1. #dailymission it gives me time alone with my thoughts. It seems like the only thing that truly quiets my brain down.Running has given me a confidence that I've never had before. When my long r... read more

    A legitimate reason to wear short shorts and tight shirts.

      I sure did up on Wildwood at the Red Lizard Purge and Spluge last year (ask Chelsie). I was cold waiting for the rest of the folks to finish and had to take off my wet bra. I went up the trail and took off my shirt and the bra (not easy when it is 30 degrees and the bra is wet) and who comes around the corner? A hiking group. They looked unhappy and I tried to explain "It's cold". One of the ladies frowned and said "I can see that". Haters....:P

  10. #dailymission Gives me a valid reason to turn down drinks & shots the night before. Or even better yet, a valid reason to go home early.

  11. #dailymission The excuse to buy all the trendiest workout clothes, a zillion pair of sneakers, and lots of fun gadgets that provide me with useless information.

      last summer i lined up at a 5K with a cotton tee shirt and an old pair of mesh shorts. I felt like a dork! Even my husband said "lets go get you some workout clothes" but you WORK OUT in them. I have a hard time paying a lot of money for expensive "gear" but slowly i'm breaking in!!!

      very addicted to all of the wicking fabrics. I like knowing the distance from the garmin, but my pace can be demoralizing

  14. #dailymission Being athletic gives me a self-righteous feeling of superiority. Sounds like a joke, but I know I'm better than most people because I kick my own ass.

  15. #dailymission Peace and quiet! With four kids at home, running is the only thing that gives me real, true alone, just-for-me, time.

  17. #dailymission Time to think and an excuse to get out of the house.
