So cool — I got to guest post on Ann’s Running Commentary. Ann Brennan is a 44-year old triathlete training to complete her first Ironman, and the mother of two teenagers and an elementary-aged son. She is also a fabulous writer and powerful force in the triathlon community. And, she’s my dear friend, one of those I have never met IRL, but have loved from afar since Eric matched us up on Twitter two years ago.
Here’s a taste of my post, but please head over to her site to read the rest of, “Just keep me away from the mirrors, please.”
Let’s get one thing straight: I ain’t no spring chicken. Yes, I may wear the same clothing sizes, and, to the horror of my kids, the same “vintage” clothing at times, but I can’t rock a bikini quite the way I used to. Between the varicose veins, sun-creped skin, and spider-webbed eyes, there’s no place to look that doesn’t give away my age. But I’ve got bigger issues to worry about than thighs that wiggle and arms that waggle.
