Summer of Sarah

Tomorrow morning I'll wake up bright and early to meet up with Rachel and run/old lady shuffle my first 5k.

I've been working really hard on running all winter and despite my two week hiatus between when I cancelled my gym membership (followed by the cold spell) and now, I'm pretty proud of how far I've come.

Today I decided to reward myself by buying a pair of shorts. I have successfully managed to avoid shorts since I hit puberty, but I figured with the warmer weather and my new hobby that it was time. After trying on pair after pair, I decided I'm still not ready for shorts (minus cycling shorts, but I have to choice on that).

So tomorrow I have my first 5k. Next Saturday I have the Get in Gear run I've been preparing for all winter.

This will be the Summer of Sarah.

I run and ride in spandex but shorts are the bane of my existence. Seriously. I have like 10 pairs of capri pants and have started collecting sundresses on the advice of a friend who lives car free. She likes them for summer casual biking because sweat is not that big a deal and you dry quickly ;) I feel your pain with shorts.
