Surviving your 20s and standing on the edge of 30 years old causes most women to curl up on the floor in the fetal position. It’s ignited a new sense of adventure. I guess you could say that’s why I’m doing Dirty Girl. I enjoy dogsitting, traveling, wine and fancy beers, great restaurants and connecting people with each other.
I have never run a 5k.
I hate running.
I have no upper body strength.
I’ve called myself a ‘marshmallow just trying to make it in this world.’
I broke my arm by slipping and falling on the sidewalk when I was 10.
I honestly don’t have the best track record when it comes to athletics.
I love sports though. I’m an avid hockey fan, have watched the NFL and Buffalo Bills since I can remember. I can shoot hoops, and I’m not bad at it. I’m a decent swimmer and golfer. And I actually really like sweating through tennis.
But actual running? I HATE it.
I’m a control freak and like being able to control when I can start and stop my own misery and uncomfortableness. Running? When you stop, it feels like
you have given up. That also makes me crazy.
But, I just lost my job and turning 30 soon, so why the hell not?
The sad part of this is, I’m currently not entirely doing it for the exercise, but for the opportunity to explain my journey of pain and suffering through the written word. And for a new experience.
If I can connect with someone also going through a similar experience, feeling similar pain, then I’ve done my job.
