Major Problem

Okay peeps! We have a problem, MAJOR PROBLEM. You all know I am participating in the Chicago Marathan. I am raising money through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It is called VTNT (Virtual Team in Training) I get e-mails every week from the charity. I have a coach and a mentor, it is a pretty big deal. Well I just received an e-mail letting me know that for the marathon they want us to all wear the same outfit. They have team singlets for us to wear. Yes, you heard it right, SINGLET! Ummm ya last I checked spandex was not a part of my wardrobe. I like to think I am pretty easy going. Go with the flow kind of girl, but I don't know how I feel about flowing in spandex for 26.2 miles. Seriously does anyone in there right mind think they look good in spandex. I hate to be beat a dead horse, but seriously......SPANDEX???

What's the problem?!?! I love spandex and think I look rather sexy in it. I'll send you pictures of me...in spandex! That should make you feel better! Maybe they will let you assessorize is with a scrunched up knit fabric belt...and you can always wear two pairs of sox, two different colors, and roll them down to make two rows of colored rolls! I'm tellin' ya, you got options babe! See! No problem!

(what I'm trying to say is, "good luck with that!)

Oh wow!!!! Can you say back in the 80's again???? Let's just hope they're not bright yellow? Or are they?

Maybe you could feather your hair like a Charley's Angel too. No wait!, Olivia Newton John . . . there we go. Wow, now we have the full-visual.

Oh, if you only knew how hard I'm laughing right now. And I'll have you all know that Natalie's description of that outfit was in fact something she wore in college, I think I was. With a sweatshirt wrapped around your waist, was it Nat!? I thought you looked so cool....oh how foolish I was. But Brit, seriously, I hear spandex weggies are quite a pistol to get out. I'm with Nat, good luck with that, and definitely post pictures.

If it were me I would just tell them, "I am sooo sorry, but I am terribly allergic to spandex, otherwise I would for sure wear that piece of sh..-I mean that singlet".

Brit, if you can flow in spandex, you are my hero! I CAN'T WAIT for pics!!!!

As long as you are rocking "Footloose" or "Pour Some Sugar on Me" on your iPod you'll feel right at home. Spandex is nothing! I wore a purple leopard speedo in a 5-man marathon relay with my shirt tied in a knot at the corner. I did this not for leukemia, cancer, or aids, but a cool $100. If I could sport the banana hammock for $100, I think you should have no problem in a onsie for lymphoma and leukemia. Suck it up Schroed!

P.S I don't know what is worse, Brit in spandex or me commenting on this damn blog!

Hey everyone thanks for all the positive enforcement! I will send you all a portion of the therapy bill.

PS Jake...um ya thanks for the mental picture of you in a purple leapard speedo. By the way, stop the denying, everyone already knows you are a closet blogger!

We all know about your bowel issues so just tell them that the morning of the race you sh-- yourself and therefore rendering the spandex unwearable.

Besides we have already planned on wearing cute matching outfits, and although I love you I will not be pouring myself into spandex!

Good Luck sista!

Jill said...

And you better make sure to post those pics!

I sincerly doubt you will be wearing spandex. This is a marathon, not a triathon you will be participating in. This in the fall as well, I doubt you want, as well as other running this with you, will be freezing your butts off in the beginning by this. Having seen maratahons and ran in them, I don't think that is true one bit! I am suspecting it will be a muscle shirt that can be worn on top of your marathon running clothes. I am sure all fears will be put aside once you see it...
