Jogging: “Everybody’s Doing It”

So I’m trying to become a jogger.

(Everytime I talk about jogging, I can’t help but think of Anchorman when Ron Burgandy says,

“Veronica and I are trying this new fad called uh, jogging.  I believe it’s jogging– or yogging.  It might be a soft j.  I’m not sure, but apparently you just run for an extended period of time.  It’s supposed to be wild.”

I love that movie.)

One of my dearest friends has become a bonafide runner, and I’m trying to get it together enough to do a 5K race with her in September.  5k should be no big deal, right?  I am in reasonably good shape, after all.  But so far I just feel pathetic, as it feels like someone is stabbing me in the hips and sooner, rather than later, I’m just limping along.  (I think this is because of my bowed legs.)

However I’ve got some new stretches, and a whole 5K plan, and G to cheer me on.  (He’s totally joined The Jogging Craze.)

Any tips?  I mean, besides wearing outfits like the ones above?

    I think the outfits Lee and Farrah are wearing would inspire just about anybody to start “yogging!” I love it – this whole post totally made me laugh, but I’m sad about your hip situation. I hope it gets better…

    This is hilarious! Good luck with the running. I wanted to see too if you would do something for me… i don’t know this but ever so often I commission someone to do a drawing of my son… would you be up to doing one… for my husband for christmas? e-mail me if so and we can talk turkey…

    When I think about jogging, my body goes “oh no, you said you wouldn’t do that to us again”.
