making the cut ...

Today at 10 a.m., I will be in pre-op for my shoulder surgery (the result of this crash). Part of me is freaked as this is my first surgery. But, part of me is pumped because the surgery marks the start of my comeback (yes, I realize I've only been "out" 10 days). Plus, scars are wicked cool, so I have that going for me too.

So, wish me luck. Tell me I'll be OK. And mail me gifts. All of those things will make me feel better.

And, do you know what else would make me feel better? Being pictured in Runner's World. Yeah, that would be sweet. And it could happen. Yesterday, I received an email from Sarah Bowen Shea (of Run Like A Mother: The Book fame), it read ...

"Dress to impress! Runner's World Magazine is looking for the photos for a feature SBS has written for upcoming August issue. For your chance to appear in the mag, email a jpeg of you wearing your most stand-out-from-the-crowd running outfit (think: loud colors, sparkles, accessories, knee-high socks, the works!) to: fastinistas at gmail dot com. Deadline is this FRIDAY!"

Do you have a look that can make the cut? Then, email it in. Personally, I like to think I have my thumb on running fashionably.

And who knows maybe one of these looks will grace the pages of Runner's World.

I was trying to think of something to say with "healed" or "healing" in it, but it all sounded very preacher-y. Here's to a complete recovery!

Ask for some anti-nausea meds for after, just in case.
