Clairee Belcher: Looks like two pigs fightin’ under a blanket.

Who’s Clairee Belcher you ask? Why, she’s Olympia Dukakis of course…the witty southern belle in the movie Steel Magnolias. Remember? She saw the mayor’s new wife, a slightly full-figured woman, shaking her booty on the dance floor.

Well that’s how I felt jogging tonight. Ladies, without proper under garments, thou shan’t try to run anywhere, let alone along a public highway! The cellulite was if full motion with me and all I could think of was Clairee’s two pigs fighting’ under a blanket wisecrack.

But wait…God bless the mayor’s wife for truly allowing her spirit to move her (and her booty), to express her true self in that moment, even in the face of criticism and jeering. That beautiful woman’s rump was rolling with the wave of music in a real and authentic way. How can anyone really scorn that?

So as I work on trying to jog a quick 3K with slightly less than ideal support garments, I give myself a mental pat on the back (or swat on the cellulite) and tell myself that I’m out there doing my thing, despite the fact that it ain’t pretty. And I’m okay with that. 😉

3K done. Tomorrow is a rest day. We’ll pick back up on Saturday y’all! Cheers.
