My badge of sweat ...

As I was scrubbing off the remnants of my spray tan in the shower this morning I was poo-pooing about how annoying it was that my running shorts had rubbed off the tan on the top half of my thighs leaving me with a rather obvious running shorts line.

It took me a while to realize that I even though I had been scrubbing away furiously for the last two days, it still wasn't going ... I had indeed acquired myself a fabulous summer accessory ...

A running tan!

Next, I checked my shoulders and there it was ... A racer back tan!

They look gorgeous don't they?  Especially when wearing a strappy number that is so necessary in our ridiculously hot summer sub tropical climate .

I don't run during the day or afternoon when the sun is at its hottest ( that would be crazy ).  No, this tan can be acquired whilst running at 6am ...

At this point I might mention that a lot could be said for daylight saving or even cold, dark mornings but I won't because I particularly don't like cold, dark mornings.  I am much happier with hot, sunny mornings when you can tell the intensity of your workout by the pool of sweat at your feet in the driveway when you get home.

So I have chosen to wear my tan as a badge of honour earned through my own hard work, sweat and tears ( no really, there are sometimes tears ) that I will get sprayed out before my next Christmas function requiring a special frock!

Keep running!

Sometimes it's kinda cool .. Except when you can see it! It reminds me that I've done some hard work ;)
