Borrowing an idea I saw in Women’s Running the other day. A group of runners was playing a game of “Would you rather” and had some pretty funny answers to some made up running dilemmas. Let’s give it a try shall we?
Would you rather…
Would you rather forget your sports bra or your socks?
A no brainer for me! This girl is “blessed” with some DD’s so there is no chance I could even run without a running bra. That would be the cause of 2 black eyes for sure. I’ve tried every bra out there so if you need suggestions for great underwire bras let me know. When asked over dinner to my runner friends the other night, the ladies overwhelming picked the bra as the necessity over socks.
Side note: this led to talk about bra chafing. I had used aquafor for chafing a number of times but apparently also great to use before said chafing.
Would you rather run a flat race in the blazing summer heat or an extremely hilly run in freezing temps?
If running in perfect 50 temps on a nice rolling course is not an option, I am going with a hilly run in the winter. That summer humidity really just zaps me. I figure you can always keep warm with the right clothes on and well those hills-I am always up for a challenge.
Would you rather give up carbs or coffee?
I’d give up carbs. No wait! I’d give up coffee! Who am I kidding I just can’t give up either one of them-ever. When chatted about over dinner the other night, this dilemma proved to be the most difficult for the 4 runners at the table.
My always caffeinated friend and Ultimate Coffee Date host, Coco, said “You know I’d walk miles to get to a Starbucks”. Coco is very serious about her coffee fix and where she gets it.
My friend Anne chimed in with “wait can I have a diet coke”?
What is it about us runners and our coffee fix? Maybe someone could invent some caffeine infused carbs? Speaking of coffee dates, mark your calendars for the next one on March 4th.
So tell me, would you rather give up coffee or carbs? Would you rather forget your sports bra or your socks? Would you rather run flats in the summer or hills in the winter?
