A new cartoon every Friday, plus special days!

Support Bra

Remember when your mom said it was time for you to start wearing a bra? I was 11 the day my mother raised her eyebrows, and with a silly grin announced, “Pookie, you are filling out. It’s time to go down to Godfrey’s and get you a training bra!”

A training bra? Come on. Training for what?

I was very much a tomboy and preferred making mud pies over making a fashion statement. I wasn’t ready for grown up lady stuff like that.

But, I had to admit, my body was changing, and I had enough to worry about with my “girly” hormones starting to kick in, hair sprouting in forbidden places, and trying to be not so nerdy at school, that I sure as heck didn’t need my boobs to sprout into erratic jello-wobbly wild things. So, I got the bra, and began the process of getting my titties “trained.”

Actually, I just wore the silly thing (which wasn’t more than a sash made of stretchy material with straps) to school and church. But when I got home I ditched it, freed my puppies, put on play clothes and let gravity do its thing.

It’s kind of the same now.

I only wear a bra when I’m out in public, and if wearing loose clothes, not even then.

But, I never go out for a walk , run or to the gym without a sports bra. EVER!

Getting my legs to cooperate while exercising requires a lot of concentration and if my boobs are spanking my chest, it really hurts as well as throws me off balance. It’s necessary.

However, getting in and out of a sports bra is always a challenge. If it’s hot, Capt’n Clean has to help to pull it down in the back because I don’t have Gumby arms that move that way.

After a run, I’m always drenched in sweat and it takes a lot of effort to free the twins.

But when I’m out on the trail, my sports bra is my best friend. It makes me feel like I know what I’m doing and like I am a…real…athlete. Okay, maybe not a real athlete because I’m not a “bra only” runner. I don’t have the guts for that. But my sports bra definitely makes me feel “athletic.”

I’m sure you can relate. If you are a “Bra Only” Girl, way to go. Woo hoo!

If not, I salute you as well. Bravo!

Whether you are an A (almost boobs) or a D (double dang) cup, don’t even think about tackling the trail, track , or gym without your best support cheerleader, your sports bra!

Hope this one eliminates the jiggle and makes you giggle! Tee hee!

It’s high time you get a front closure sports bra all my sweaty athletic friends wear, all 3 of them -they said they’d never go back to that old 1977 invention of over the head.

It was Senator Gaylord Nelson who, in the 1960s, brought awareness of the environment and keeping it clean. He proposed National Earth Day in 1970 and on April 22nd, 20 million Americans took to the street in support of a clean environment and to protest harmful environment practices. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was created as a result.

As a runner/walker, there is a lot you can do to help Mother Nature to protect and clean up our planet.

1. Go Plogging
In essence, plogging is picking up trash and waste while you are out on your run or walk. Plogging is actually a Swedish word, combining the words, plocko upp (pick up) and jogga (jog).

2. Support Companies that are Environmentally Friendly
It takes everyone doing their part to make a difference. Companies that have made cleaning the planet part of their mission include Adidas, Brooks, Ikea, Unilever, and Patagonia lead the list.

3. Go Plastic-less
Plastic is the one of the hugest threats to our oceans. Making a few simple changes can make your plastic footprint smaller. Things like bringing your own grocery bags while shopping, refusing to use plastic straws and cutlery, bringing your own water bottle and coffee cup, and never, ever using glitter are a few ways to show Mother Nature you care.

4. Walk or Bike, Rather than Using the Car
This is a no-brainer!

5. Plant a New Tree Each Year

6. Save Energy
Save energy in your home by turning off lights and fans and unplugging devices that aren’t being used.

Check out EarthDay.org for more active projects and groups to make each April 22nd, better than the last.
