Who knew all the gear you'd have to have be a runner with children. In my case it's things like shoes, anti-chaffing stick, E-Gel, water, treadmill, sippy cup, jogging stroller, some kids dvd's (lately Veggie Tales: Jonah and The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything, a happy change from Max & Ruby's Easter Special that we've been watching since...well...Easter). You know, all things that make it somehow possible to sneak those runs in no matter what the kiddies happen to be throwing my way on any particular day. But yesterday, perhaps the strangest item ever made it into my running ensemble. Something I never in a million years would have guessed. Garland.
That's right. Garland. Gold, shiny, sparkly, weave around your Christmas Tree garland. Now let's just pause here for a sec before we continue to give you an opportunity to take a few guesses as to what exactly this garland had to do with my run. No...wait...even better. Let's actually stop here and see if any of you can figure it out. Leave your best guesses in the comments.
Maybe we should we have a prize to eh? Hmmm.... How about this? Whoever gets it right first I'll send a free E-Gel (I know. I'm really coughing up the big bucks here. What a giver!) I just got a box in the mail. I'll even let you pick your flavor.
