A compliment...or two :)

Monday, June 25, 2012

This weekend, I ran the Starbucks Run for Women 10k on Saturday and then the HM clinic group run 9 km on Sunday. I felt pretty good while running both. The weather was perfect. No small feat on Saturday when, up until 30 minutes before the race, it was pouring. I'm not kidding, I was actually starting to wonder if it would be a smart run to do. It was raining that hard. Here's some of the girls and I with the firemen that were handing out the bling at the finish line.

And here's the link to the race course itself. I've been told the elevation doesn't look that bad but, trust me, the hills were real butt blasters. connect.garmin.com/activ

On Sunday, my HM clinic and I were scheduled to run 9kms (LSD). I was happily surprised to see so many from the day before out to run again. Literally, I was giddy with joy. During our run, I dealt with something that I'm REALLY not comfortable with.... twice. Two of my buddies gave me compliments on my weightloss. The second, however, was very specific. "Your ass is looking great". I just grinned and said thank you. (In case you're wondering why PEHASS2/Paul won't mind reading this, the compliment came from a woman) Personally, since I get to see it w/o its spandex/lycra covering, I don't see the big deal BUT it was still nice to hear that my hard work is paying off. I have, however, noticed less jiggle when I run. I like that.

For my next trick, I'd like to have defined arms and less tricep wiggle.

    This makes me smile!

    Such a great feeling getting those compliments...which is the exact reason why maintenance is so hard! You have come such a long way since Roo was born. I am so proud of you! emoticon

    Good job on the two back-to-back runs. I hear you on the tricep wiggle.

    Getting some nice curves. Keep up the ST and you will see less jiggle in your arms also.

    Great job, yes the rain gods stopped to watch you run. Compliments are always welcome, running is so great on the toosh and legs.

    Wow... nice job running on Saturday. I'm ashamed to say that I opened my eye, looked out at the weather, and immediately went back to sleep (I did get a workout in later, but I totally wimped out on going outside).

    It's always a nice boost to get a compliment. I think it's easy to focus on the less-than-perfect while not seeing the overall changes, so it's a good reminder when someone notices. Looking great!
