Running skirt Goddess

Victoria Goddess Run beckons, hills and all - Blogs  September 6, 2013 – 11:22

finish line Have you ever noticed that it seems to take longer the first time you travel somewhere,but the same route home seems shorter.

That,and the fact I don’t want any ugly surprises,means I drove out to Langford on Sunday to scope out the half-marathon route for the Victoria Goddess race next weekend.

I reasoned that if I drove the route,I’d be somewhat familiar with it and the 20-plus kilometres won’t seem as long. I also want to know where the hills are. Both are much easier to tackle with horsepower under the hood rather than aging legs under a running skirt,but I need every advantage I can muster.

It’s been a long training season,with a late-in-the-game slowdown due to a cranky IT Band and the Goddess Run on June 2 is just about the last race I can do before the training clinics start for a fall race.

First I was aiming for the May 4 BMO half-marathon in Vancouver,then it was the May 25 Oak Bay half marathon,but I needed to let my leg recover before putting myself in a race,when I tend to forget my intention to run slow and smart and end up pushing myself to a black-toe-nails finish.

And really – I think perhaps that I was meant to run as a goddess.

The inaugural Goddess Run last year was a hoot.blingFive of my best friends,known in our youth as the Wild Women but behind our backs by our husbands as the Mild Women,converged on Victoria to celebrate our friendship with the 5K and 10K distances. We ate,we drank,we laughed,we even made it to the start line.

Judging by the clusters of women at last year’s race,some in togas and others in pink tutus,we weren’t the only friends,family or work colleagues who decided that an all-female run was overdue.

Organizers Cathy Noel and Andrea Carey are known in the Victoria running community for their support of healthy living for women as much as their competitiveness.

They decided the Goddess Run would be different in several ways.RoadsideSome of the registration fees goes to three charities that support women and girls – The Victoria Women’sTransition Shelter,the Victoria Women’s Sexual Assault Centre and ProMotion Plus; finishers get jewelry,not a clunky medal destined for the sock drawer; onsite child care is provided as is chocolate. Need I say more?

One thing they did change were the routes. I was a bit chuffed last year when I was barely out of the starters’ chute when I encountered a steep hill. A short one,mind you,but a hill none the less.

Driving this year’s route (the portions that are not part of the Galloping Goose Trail,which I know to be flat),I kept a nervous eye out for anything other than an undulation.

I knew part of the route was along Metchosin Road,but would it be the killer incline up from the gravel pit?

After a few wrong turns (the printing on the map was squint-worthy) I found what I was looking for – at kilometer 7.5 on the route – the climb from Latoria Road up Wishart Road.

Women furious over O`BAMA comments

Hillary Camp Assails Obama Anti-Palin Ad

Hillary Clinton supporters and Women for McCain leadership are slamming Barack Obama’s new ad, titled “His Choice,” as sexist and demeaning to women for its depiction of running mate Sarah Palin.
The ad features a McCain quote about relying on his vice president for economic advice — and then shows an unrelated clip of Palin winking mischievously at the camera.
The implication: She’s less than a person to be taken seriously

PTI is damn good

They show a list of topics, in order, with a running clock on time left (so you can grab a 2-min snack while their profiling women's college softball), two good hosts, good arguements and corrections at the end (it's minor, but gives the show credibility).
And thank you for the hot chicks comment. Fox is bad with that, like that "weather girl" during Fox's NFL shows. She's a waste of blue screen, with her knee high boots, tight sweater and short skirt. If I want porn, I'll re-up with Voluptuous.com for $20/mo and download all I want.

Random stupid question

Historically speaking....
Why were pants deemed the clothing for men and skirts/dresses for women?
Doesn't it seem like it should have been the other way around?
Men, with their package, would have more comfort with a dress or skirt.
Women, with society rules, should have their stuff enclosed in pants.
I'm home sick with the flu and one of the symptoms is stupid things running thru my head.

Nothing

Please do not wear jeans. Wear the darkest colors you have, preferably a dress, skirt, or suit. You can also take sunglasses to hide running mascara if you think you will cry. Women used to wear veils for this purpose but sunglasses are considered okay now.
I know it sounds fuddy duddy to wear a dress, but it shows that you respect the family enough to dress up. Sorry for your loss.
