Yesterday I was searching for my Wordless Wednesday picture online since my picture from my Droid wasn't cooperating. I was looking up the sticker or decal 3.1 which is what a 5k is. Lots of people have 13.1 or 26.2 stickers on their cars to show off that they had made the sacrifice to run those miles. So, as I was searching through Goggle, I came across a web-page that caught my eye. I skimmed through the post that this person had wrote because it was on the running decals for cars. I got to the end where he proceeds to say that putting a 3.1 decal sticker on your car is lame.
My jaw literally dropped. Now, I know for some people that 3.1 miles is nothing to them. But to me and to numerous people on twitter, that is a stepping stone in our health journey. I mean, last year I was obese and HATED running. Yesterday, I decided that I was going to RUN, OUTSIDE, for the first time this year. I ran 3 plus miles through my neighborhood in about 34 minutes. Think about it, I went running because I wanted to, because I can run now, because I enjoy it. It may not be 13.1 or 26.2 miles but its a start. Some people never get up and go running just because they can, some people never even run a mile or a 5k in their entire life. I am doing something that a lot of people never choose to do.
So, my question to my fellow bloggers is, is it "lame" to buy a 3.1 sticker and put it on my car? Don't be shy, tell the truth, you will not hurt my feelings. I just want to know if people will look at it and be like, wow, or people will look at it and laugh.
Should I buy a 3.1 sticker? Btw, this is the link to the person's page again... lame
