>General Running>Lessons learned from running...
I'm trying to talk my hubby into wearing one of the cycling skirts when he does a benefit ride for the JDRF in Aug. I think it would be a great way to raise money for the charity--send money and see Derek ride 105 miles in the Rockies in a skirt!
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

In the realm of the bizarre, my video has become something of a celebrity piece among men who like to dress in skirts. I honestly don't know how I feel about being a vanguard of that movement! To each their own but I think I'll stick to doing this sort of thing for fun and a good cause. Mark

Some of my fastest running times have come amist a turtle head poking out.
""...the truth that someday, you will go for your last run. But not today—today you got to run." - Matt Crownover (after Western States)
I just can't get past how wearing sneakers with a skirt just looks odd.
Wait, personal lessons from running:
- Not all runs are blissful.
- The mind is a powerful thing. Mind over matter, and you can do incredible things.
- Wine is a good carb.
- My calves are freakishly large.
- I am a maneater.
What have I learned from running? I've learned:
o I'm much more competitive than I let on
o I really can go the distance
o I'm not a quitter
Does a kilt count? I would do that.
So I guess what I've learned is that slits creep. This one creeps:
and this one doesn't....or hasn't yet.
And, even with all that drama I still like running in skirts over shorts.
modified to add: I didn't get any creep action when I was running WITHOUT the fanny pack, so that may be partly to blame as well.
