I know. Two posts in one day. If you missed this morning’s about showing off my new suit at the pool and flipping off bald guys, go HERE.
I’m feeling just slightly famous today. If you want to send me your underwear or a roll of toilet paper to autograph, go for it. I’ve loaded up on Sharpies.
Why the excitement? Thanks for asking. Those authors, runners and mothers – Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea – profiled me on their website in their renowned, “Follow This Mother!” feature. I tried to get them to change the name to “Follow This Mother F*cker,” but to no avail.
If you’ve been in the bathroom for the last year, these guys wrote the book, “Run Like a Mother.”
When they asked if I wanted to play along, I fell all over myself saying “Hell, yes!” Then I quickly added that I would be willing to tone down my answers from my usual crude behavior. Sarah said, “NO!” and invited me to stay true to the SUAR philosophy.
Well, I kept out the f-bombs, but let the shit fly.
By the way, if you haven’t read the book, you’ve got to. I think some bloggers (Jill for sure) contributed some advice to the book. This is not your typical “I’m a mom and I run” stuff. There is some really good, hands on advice. And inspiration, to boot. Plus these ladies are incredible runners.
Today I am grateful I have a vagina and was able to bear children. Certainly if I didn’t have one and adopted that would work too. Being a mother and a runner means that I have made it to the big time.
