My 3 running wishes in case I meet a Genie!

I know many of you might be thinking, what could I possibly wish for?  I already live in a beautiful state that allows me the opportunity to run year round OUTSIDE!  So, what else could I wish for?

My 3 running wishes:

#1 To eliminate chafing!  I have tried every product and bra combo and can be fine one day and then race day comes and I am a mess.  Short of spraying myself down with cooking spray before I go out the door I am at a loss!

#2  To never fall again!  Wouldn’t it be nice to just get out there and run and NEVER worry about falling down?  I mean really, how many scars should one person have?  Just saying.

#3  To win the Florida lottery!  I know that money doesn’t grow on trees but a nice healthy lottery win would do the trick!  Race registrations fees, no problems!  Expensive airline tickets, no problem!  Maybe I should buy a ticket today, you can’t win if you don’t play!

If you found a genie, what would you wish for?  Could you come up with 3 running wishes?  

Stop by and visit Marcia, Erika and Patty for the Tuesday on the run link up!

  6. I used to get a lot of bra chafing and honestly upgrading to better bras have really solved this problem for me. On longer runs I also use bodyglide. Chafing is the worst!

    If I could see a genie, the first thing I wish would be bring a great boyfriend to me. I’ve never felt in love for 22 years :(((((( The second thing would be for my sister. I hope she is always happy and lives with her passion. The last thing I will keep it for myself ^^
    Your post is so funny =)) Hope that your wish can be true ^^

    I have issues with chafing too. I use Gold Bond Friction Defense. I actually use it during training runs too for those just in case days.

    Hopefully, I can grant one of your wishes. Trail Toes. Put it everywhere you chafe. Problem solved. Seriously…try it.

  12. Oh, I’m sure I could come up with quite a few. Just decided to go a different way.

    I haven’t fallen in a race . . . yet. But I have fallen. And I’ve come really close to falling in a race. Not fun!

    Agreed, not falling down and not chafing would be awesome. How do we make this happen? Winning the lotto would be cool, too, but I don’t play it so I probably won’t win. 😉

  14. Oh this really got me thinking:
    1. To win the lottery so I don’t have to worry about a job getting in the way of my running. (I had to steal that one)
    2. To be injury free forever.
    3. No crazy illnesses, a standard cold is normal, but none of this nutso stuff.

  15. Wining the lottery would be great. And yes to no more chafing! Thats a good one.

    My knees are scarred from so many falls! I don’t have too many chafing issues but I am pretty cautious with what I wear.

  17. I have a lot of running wishes, it was hard to narrow it down to just three! My wishes were more profound/philosphical than material (not sure how that happened LOL)

  18. I could handle winning the lottery and never having to worry about money again! I am lucky and don’t have to deal much with chaffing. every now and then I do and its not fun!
