With a blog title like that, I'm sure that you are expecting my confession to be about how I want running to turn my body from muffin-top flab to rock-hard minx.
And while I would love for that to be the case... I am aware that it is not going to happen. Not while I'm enjoying 5lbs of chocolate and gallons of ice cream. I'm okay with that.
No - the driving force behind my runs is bragging rights.
You see, I have family and friends that are easily impressed - so my declaration of completing 9 races in 2010 leaves many in awe.
And I just eat it up.
Yes, I also enjoy many other things about running. I love to race (even though "race" is a relative term for my 10 minute mile pace), I love the cardio benefits, I love the "me" time, and I really love the automatic love for other runners out there.
But most of all it's the collection of t-shirts and medals that I have. And I'll keep running and racing to add more to them.
