I have to tell on myself. Let me start this post off by saying I am and have been a runner since I was in my early 20's. So I've been doing this for about 16 or 17 years. I've had some interesting experiences along the way. I once got caught out far from home during a tornado warning. I also had a man try to pull my shorts off while running on a bike trail....I think it may have even been these pictured. Anyways....I've had them forever. They are my FAVORITE pair of shorts to run in. I ran 2 marathons in them. This is a photo of the back.....
And you may wonder why I have photos of my ripped running shorts???? There is more to the story...We don't live on a running friendly street. So to run during the week with my kids I have to get them ready in the morning, pack Mighty's diaper bag, pack a snack for Doodlebug, get all of us out to the garage and loaded into the Tahoe. We go to a local park about 5 minutes down the road in town and I park there. Haul the Burley trailer out of the back and get both kids loaded into the trailer with all our "stuff".....It's at THIS point on Monday that I realize that this is what has happened to my shorts.
Yeah EXACTLY!!!!! And the weather here has been smoking hot. I mean I'm already sweating like crazy --- And I'm thinking "I did ALL this to get here and now I'm going to have to go back home?!??!?!" And more importantly how many cars drove past me BENDING over to get the trailer ready?!?!?!?? Not my finest moment.
Motherhood is NOT for the faint of heart girls!!!! If you're a mom you know what I'm talking about. All kinds of things happen that are totally embarrassing and you just have to learn to let it go....so I found a towel in the car, tucked it in the back of my waistband and took off down the road. So if you saw a crazy lady pushing a trailer down the road and she had a towel hanging off her backside it was me :) Just be glad I discovered the rip!!!!!!!!
