Okay, since it's nine facts about my body and not nine things I like about my body, this should be okay.

1) I have two little circular scars in the middle of my forehead from 3rd grade chicken pox.
2) I have never been good at refraining from scratching or picking at or biting my skin and nails no matter how much my mom nagged me about it (see #1).
3) I'm almost 5'10", which means even if stores ever sold tall size clothing, it would be slightly too long for me. Why can't women's clothes be sized like men's clothes?
4) My big toes are my longest toes, which is why I have size 11 feet and hate shoe shopping.
5) I'm almost 40 and have almost as much acne as I did when I was 16. I better age well without a lot of wrinkles, damn it.
6) I have very long and thin fingers.
7) My legs can carry me for 13.1 miles at a time.
8) I have a really great rack. (she says modestly)
9) I cannot do downward dog, but other than that, my body enjoys doing yoga.

7. Awesome. That's a half marathon, right? Have you done a marathon and if not, would you ever want to?

I had chicken pox in 8th grade. Ugh. I'm glad they have a shot now.

That's right! No, I have not, but I think about it ALL THE TIME. I keep saying I have to get faster at the half first, because I can't imagine shuffling along for over five hours, but I don't get any faster, so maybe I should just do it?

Go for it. I would think being with all the other runners would be pretty exciting. Easy for me to say from my comfortable seat flopped on the couch......

I never had chicken pox and never worried about it until I worked in a public library and a child decided to show me his pox scabs. Happily that was about the time the vaccine came out, so I got the shot.

Why are most clothes made for women between 5'5" - 5'8"? So aggravating.

Oh, man, that would be terrible. And I didn't even know there was a shot now!

Plus petite sections in most stores. And you can always get your clothes hemmed (if it's affordable), but if the pants are too short, there's not much you can do!

Ah, acne. My sister (40) and I have had a reasonable number of pimples (her worse than me) as well. Finally, I decided to gamble and try skin clarity in the last year and a bit (it compared itself to proactiv) and the improvement in my sister in particular is amazing. I'd given up hope on trying anything, as nothing worked, but finally found something that did!

Downward dog = my yoga nemesis.

That's good to know! I keep trying new things, and most of them work okay, but nothing has worked super well.

I'm glad to hear you say that! Yoga classes where that's supposed to be the default, relaxing pose baffle me. Are my arms really that weak?

Yep, my feeling exactly. It would probably help if my feet were flat on the ground, though, I think. But don't have that flexibility yet.

Got your card on Wednesday. Thank you!

Now if only I could get faster at it!
