PostHeaderIcon I run like a girl part 1

Yeah.  I do.  And I’m proud to run like a girl.  I love all the vendors at various expos and the strength of support for women runners.

Evidence:

I own a warm up shirt that on one sleeve says I Run Like A Girl.

I have a magnet on my fridge that says “I don’t chase boys.  I pass ’em”

I have a sticker on my car that says “I know I run like a girl.  Try to keep up.”

Is this a bit of a gender exercise?  Perhaps.  It’s not the main motivation.  But it’s a damn fun one.  Especially when male friends of mine heckle me, joke about being faster than me or able to crush me on a course not having trained against me who is committed to training.  And then validated when I share the 1:44 PR from my most recent race and the reply is “Holy crap. Ok, i admit it.  You’re fast.”  Yes, yes I am.  Damn straight.

And I’m PROUD to be a girl and to Run Like A Girl.
