FACT: I don't like sweaty cups.
So whipping this ol' bra into tip-top shape for the Paris Marathon has proven to be a bit more challenging than I expected. But hey, gimme a break...I'm just not a sports-bra, OK?! I am doing my best to avoid adhere to the hellacious rigorous training schedule that my Marathon Mistress has mapped out for me: At least 3 times per day, I'm grabbing croissants lifting weights, taking naps running laps, stretching the truth my straps, and drinking lots and lots of wine water! And then, if I'm not too exhausted from goofing off working out, I try to relax a little by perusing my blog archives...and HEY! LOOK what I found! How timely!!! I'd forgotten all about this MASTERPIECE - the result of my very 1st collaborative post with another blogger, LOBO of Predator Press! It was originally posted on September 4, 2007 ~ and is one of my all time favorites:

My heavens! I hope you did not get your straps shot off. I never knew that Blogger was in a war??
Great hats back in the day ... and that gertal is OK in my book too.

Yep ... gertal :-)

You realize that if you stay in Paris much longer you'll be required by law to marry Sarkozy.

Just wanted you to know that.

Loosing a strap is a small price to pay for freedom Speedy! I'm just glad I could give the poor woman a little support.

YIKES!!! Thanks for the heads up, Dorky Dad! Hey - how's Frank?

Dear Olga, As always I can see that you're keeping abreast on all things... [Hmmm did that sound right or left] Any who, If it comes down to being dependable you're always holding up the front, Like any good bra would do. I bid you fit and comfort. Lurv, The Queen
