Have a Twinkie

 

Lauri shared this blog post with me today and I just had to share it with all of you:  http://flintland.blogspot.com/2012/05/hey-fat-girl.html

This is a really great post and I think speaks volumes to who all of us are as runners. None of us look perfect and I’m sure we have all battled that insecurity at one time or another.  I love to see other runners out on the road, in the trails, or on the track.  I don’t care if I know them or not, if they’re 300 lbs or 100 lbs, I’m always proud of that person for being out there.  What does a runner look like anyway?  They look like the person who is moving one foot in front of the other!  That is a runner.

I do think most runners are proud of other runners regardless of their shape or size. It’s the non-runners who don’t always understand.  So, to the person who yells “go have a Twinkie” out of their car window as they drive by, I will always know I’m doing something they just don’t have the courage to do.  And, I might just have that Twinkie 🙂

  1. Great blog…great story. This is the foundation that Star Runners was built on and the reason it has flourished the way it has.
    On another note…you can tell that twinkie to stop running because I’m not eating that one. (not sure that’s a twinkie 😉
