Listening to QN podcast Irene episode... now that's Bad Girl inspiration!

Oh, the shame of it! I'm going to have to resign from the Bad Girls. I disgraced the sisterhood.

I really aspired to be "Bad", one tough Mama that people would think twice about messing with - Hey, my sister's got her black belt and drives a Harley!! (that's her in photo) I had a role model! I run with a big German Shepherd!

I set off this morning to run a usual 6 mi route, one I've run dozens of times before. It crosses through a London Underground Station, and the station staff just wave me through and open the gate. My station is one stop short of the farthest away from London you can ride on the underground, and its a quiet commuter stop, usually deserted mid-day. Today when I waved at the guy in the ticket booth, this big mean bouncer-type-guy (with a Station Manager name tag), came out the back and told me I could not come though the station without a ticket! I made feeble objections along the line of "but I always do" and "but this is a public footpath", which did not convince him. Looping around the station means running under a narrow busy underpass and perhaps an additional 0.25 mile... but my sense of injustice was in the withdrawal of my entitlement!

That's when things went horribly wrong. I just said "Oh, all right", moaned... and went around.

Why didn't I have the presence of mind to: 1) take his picture and send it with a brilliantly critical letter to the local paper or 2) teach Nelly to knock down bad guys so I could race by him or 3) at least have some clever, cutting and very Bad come-back to his parting snicker of "you're doing this to get more exercise, aren't you?"

I failed, miserably. Maybe I just needed the right T-shirt... Can I have another chance to be Bad?

Bad Girls!

Hi "ladies" (and I use that term loosely), I've been kind of busy with school start up and haven't had much of a chance to do anything with this blog.

However, I happened to notice something interesting at the bad boys blog this evening. They have a drop.io site where they can post their silly bad boy logos.

And they foolishly left it open for anyone to drop stuff.

And being the bad girl that I am, well, I couldn't resist.

Check it out ASAP, before they notice.



Update: I got a screenshot of it before they saw it.... Oh, I am so bad. I may not be able to run much, but that does mean I have some time on my hands. :)

I also left this comment on their Blog about the Drop.io site.

Another Bad A** logo

Rebecca from Just Start Running made this awesomely nasty, but yet so cute little logo.

Here it is on a bad-a** singlet. You can get at Logo Sportswear
Run on you bad girls!

T-Shirts? We've Got T-Shirts!

The Bad Boys were bragging about all of the "stuff" they have. We're catching up, but the bad boys have been in existence for much longer than the Bad Girls.

Not only do we have t-shirts, but ours are functional. Like we can run our bad @sses off in these. - And ladies, as we approach the cooler weather, I thought a long sleever might be a good addition to your fall and winter wardrobe.
