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?
Don?t forget to?link up with?Erika, Marcia and me?this week.
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??

I would definitely take an extra few inches on these sort legs of mine! That's a great wish!
p.s I can no longer comment on your blog via my phone or my ipad (which I always use to comment on blogs). For some reason your commenting system only shows up when i am on my PC. Therefore it may take me a few days to get to your TOTR posts (sorry). Unless I can figure out whats going on.
Hope you are having a blast at PHM weekend!

Ahhh- thanks for the heads up Meranda! I did turn off my JetPack feature, which is the only major change lately. That might be affecting comments. And please, no worries on TOTR. I just love that you ladies participate every week! :)

I love your wishes! Health of body and mind (especially) is so important for all aspects of life. I would be so humbled the day I can do a 12-13 mm pace. #newbierunner

Oh... I didn't think about more length in the legs... that would be a good one! I'm 5'1/2" and never did reach my dream height of 5'4" :-)

I agree all around! Great wishes! I especially agree with the health one - it would be great to never worry about those things again.
