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.”

Thanks!

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.

  1. I love that Eric is your twitter matchmaker!

  2. I read your excellent article and agree with you 100 percent – hard core workouts heal injuries! Do you guys take any sort of Omega-3 oils? Krill, fish, ? I find it is an amazing supplement (along with coconut oil) for joints and aches and pains. I racked up my knees in my early 20’s and, due to weight gain, lost cartilage and had excruciating pain in right knee (bone on bone). Like you, I discovered that working out built the knee back up and I can do everything the doc said I wouldn’t be able to do (plus he wanted me to get a cane, HA!) – good thing we didn’t pay attention to the so-called “experts”!

      Eric and I do the Omega 3, yes, and we cook with coconut oil. He does a much better job of sticking to the omega 3 than me. I’ve been known to take “vacations” 😉

  3. You seriously ROCK! seriously.

  4. i think it’s just the lighting, the way the mirror was built… and yeah, each mirror is different from the other. regular day-to-day mirrors can make you look like that. i have mirrors at home that make me look different in each. it’s weird.
