Run Pretty is a place for me to share all the little details of my life. I blog about my adventures in fitness, family life, food, and other fun things.
Why “Run Pretty”? Well, a few years ago I had the pleasure of helping coach an elementary school running club. One decidedly hot day, I decided to “race” the boys around the track. After I whooped their tails, one of the boys laughed and said “You don’t run pretty!” Ouch. I should have fired back, “IT’S RUN PRETTILY!”, but I wasn’t on my A-game.
I bet I smelled pretty, too.
Then I got to thinking about it… he was right. Sweating. Snotting. Chafing. The list goes on. Running is not the most attractive thing in the world. Especially when you consider I have all the elegance of a baby deer. But when I run, I feel pretty. I’m alive, my legs are (somewhat) working, and I am having fun. And, in my opinion, nothing is prettier than a huge (albeit dorky) smile. So I’m gonna run on & run pretty!
