Wardrobe Malfunction

This morning I did finally run.  I opted not to run outside since it was still in the 20ºs.  So I went to the gym.  I have not been a member of this gym for long (24 hour fitness), I was a member of Bally's for years.  But in January, I got a membership to 24º fitness.  

This morning, as I was running, and feeling pretty good, I noticed that I felt a bit more "bounce" than usual.  I looked down and realized that one of my bra straps was unattached to the front of the bra - see above, the bra straps loop around the front and then velcro back up.  I have worn this bra for a while and have loved it - so I was shocked to see this happen!  

I decided I could pause the treadmill and discretely reattach my bra strap.  HA!  I fumbled, and fumbled, and fumbled.  Finally, I thought I had it somewhat reattached and could resume my workout... but as soon as I did, it freed itself.  I paused the treadmill again and tried again.  It was at this time that I decided to scan my environment and realized that to my left there was an entire glass walled spinning class - facing me!  Yeah!

So, my unrestrained Double D was not to be restrained this morning.  I finished a mile and left the gym.  

Despite that rather unfortunate incident, it is a good start.  I will run more tomorrow.  But at least today I got out and did something!  And probably gave a few people something to talk about today.  (and sorry to any male readers, I am sure this is not exactly scintillating reading!)

I just added up my March mileage.  It was the least number of miles I have run in one month for at least 2 years.  I can only find my records from 2007 and 2008 at this moment.  

In 2007, I averaged 54 miles per month.  In 2008, it was 34 miles per month.  This year so far? 16 miles per month.  Oh dear.

This has got to change.
