Don’t Be That Awkward Runner

June 14, 2012 · 19 comments

On Tuesday, I alluded to the fact that my injured run resembles “the flightless bird.” Many of you inquired about said running style.

Allow me to educate you all.

I feel like I resemble the flightless bird wave when I see people during races. Except for I jump with it. Which I guess contradicts the name. 🙂 Thanks for making me smile this morning!!

This always makes me laugh. I think I’m a combo of The Dandy and Flightless Bird… if that’s possible.

I’ve seen all but the “flightless bird” in my years of running! Although I’ve been known to make the T-1000 face once in a while… 😉

I think I could like an uncoordinated hippo while running. Which is why I only have to do it if necessary. Like if someone is chasing me or the store is about to sell out of the last sale item 😉
