I DID IT.
well, WE did it, I suppose.
on Saturday, October 8th, Lu and I ran a Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon in Brooklyn. we started at the Brooklyn Museum and ended up in Prospect Park. it was a well-organized race (I love the Rock 'n Roll series - I ran one of their halfs in Chicago in 2012), plenty of course support, and a pretty enjoyable running route.
I've run a half marathon and a marathon before.
out of the total blue, I entered a "lottery" for a Nike Women's Marathon. before that, I hadn't run more than 5 miles in my entire life and normally, ran 2-3 miles at the most. to my surprise (because I never "win" anything), I got selected!
yes, I am talking about gear for big busts again! first, it was my secret to wearing backless tops, then it was my favorite strapless bra, and now, it's my most recent discovery: THE.BEST.SPORTS.BRA. (for big busts.)
I haven't found any fashion or lifestyle bloggers that do high-impact exercise and have a big bust (like, D+++). no one talks about having a big bust and being an athlete, like, ever. it's a bummer, because it makes the resources very limited for us with big busts who like to run, jump, and do other activities that stress our chests.
