Yesterday I finished my first 10 mile race. Today I'm uber sore, think I have a stress fracture in my foot, am retaining about 5 pounds of fluid (leave it to me to GAIN weight after running 10 miles) and am pretty upset with how I look in the pictures from the race. How fitting is it that a couple weeks ago my close friend G and I decided to run our weight off, this 10 miler as the starting point.
In runner's lingo, Athena is a woman runner over 150 pounds. Ding, ding, ding, that's me! Now, being referred to as a Greek goddess is quite flattering, but Athena was the androgynous goddess. Yikes, after having said that sentence out loud and looking at my pic, Athena is a pretty dead on description. Ouch! Any who, I want to be Aphrodite. She's the prettier one.
