One of my favorite Disney characters is the Genie from Aladdin. Three wishes is the typical Genie offer, right?
Let’s say you ran into a running Genie. What would your three running wishes be?
Three Running Wishes
Gosh, I don’t know about this.
I guess the obvious three would be to be naturally fleet & fast, to be uber competitive, and to be sponsored (so I could run all the Disney my heart desired).
But honestly, I don’t think I’d wish for any of that.
Wish number one would be to fall in love with running again and to stay in love— but Genie can’t make anyone fall in love.
So that bites.
Instead, I’ll start with another obvious one: health. I want to remain healthy of mind and body to keep running as long as I want to stay out there. No injuries, please! And no mental breakdowns that keep me from getting out there consistently.
I’d also go ahead and ask for a little speed because, frankly, this girl has lost all of what she once had. Which wasn’t a whole lot.
I’m not greedy; I’ll take a consistent, steady 12-13 minute pace and consider myself #blessed for years to come. Running has always been more social for me than speed related, so I’m good taking my time on the course!
And lastly, I’ll take some nice looking legs. I’ve always thought mine were stubby and short. I would love a few inches in length, to be honest. Again, I don’t need legs for days, but say, 2-3 more inches of them?
Yep. That would do.
What are your three running wishes?
