On the outside, I'm a suburban housewife...

...and I look like this:

On the inside I'm a little (a lot?) less conservative, and I want to look like this:

This is Catra, aka Dirt Diva. If you don't yet read her weblog, you should. She's just completed her EIGHTH HUNDRED MILE RACE this year!

So I know that I could go and get lots of tattoos, but I'm approaching 50, not 30, and I think those tattoos would have nowhere to go but south. Sign. I guess I'll make do with running shirts like this:


(From the Athleta catalog. More views here. The back of the shirt is even cuter than the front.)

So presumably on the inside, you're a heart-warming collection of special things.


Take care and best wishes.

If only we could alternate displays from the inner to the outer, choosing who sees what and when. BTW, your current outer is pretty damn cool too.

A very nice way to spice up your running life without the pain of permanent ink.

Well you can go somewhere in the middle of the two...maybe get one temp tat and see how that feels ;)

You are who you are and to me, you are perfect!

Marcy said...

That's such a cool idea! Very nice shirt ;-) And less expensive than getting all the tats LOL

Leslie! I think you are the coolest suburban mom ever!! And I also would like to look like Catra and run 100 miles but I gotta take little baby steps. But I do have a few tattoos! Does that count??
