Last night, I got home relatively early from work, so that I could do my recovery run outside for a change. Work has still been crazy busy and I haven’t been doing my workouts until after 6:00 each night, so I’ve been “tread milling” it rather then risk slipping on ice in the dark. So I was already in a great mood because I knew that I would be running in DAYLIGHT for a change, when I reached inside my mail box and pulled out a new Runner’s World magazine! I’ve blogged before about how excited I get just to spend an evening reading the new issues. Yes, I lead a very exciting life.
I threw the mail on the table and anxiously grabbed the new magazine. I stopped short when I saw who was on the cover. Kara Goucher. I am a HUGE Kara Goucher fan, so I was thrilled to see her on the cover.
I quickly did my recovery run and my core work, so that I could get back to my magazine. Again….I have no social life people, this IS as good as it gets.
I was sitting by the fire place staring at the magazine when my husband walked in.
“What are you staring at?” he asked.
“I’ve got the new Runner’s World.” I replied.
“Ahhhhh….did you get the new People too?” He knows me well. He knows how I love to read my magazines.
“No, but Kara Goucher is on the cover!”
My husband is not a runner so I will forgive him for not knowing who Kara is, however, I showed him the cover of the magazine and he looked at her and instantly said.
“She’s not that cute.”
Whaaaa????? Kara is NOT THAT CUTE? Now this is the same man who thinks that the cartoon chick from the E-Surance auto insurance commercial is totally hot, so I have already questioned his internal hotness meter, but come on, Kara is cute plus she’s an awesome athlete.
I just walked away shaking my head in disbelief. I am still a fan even though my husband isn’t.
Disclaimer: No, I am not a gay woman. I just happen to really like her, she inspires me. Who inspires you?
