As you know, I am training for a half-marathon...which requires hard work, a fair amount of pain and a lot of sweat. I didn't even know what real sweating was until I started this training program.
I have always been somewhat of a "girly-girl." I like lace and romantic gestures and ruffles and glitter and above all, I like to smell nice. Therefore, I have a tendency to avoid activities that would cause me to become dirty and smelly. I know, it sounds ridiculous and wimpy- but there it is.
However, I have had a revelation since beginning to run. Muscles burning, breath coming a little heavy, my ponytail all humid and fabulous, my shirt sticking to my back- that's good stuff. Sweat gets results.
I never thought I would be saying this, but walking down the street to my house after a successful run, glistening with sweat, exhausted, and indisputably not smelling nice, is one of the greatest feelings ever.
