Wishful Wednesday

Welcome to another edition of Wishful Wednesday, brought to you by Kelsey over at The Seattle Smith's.

I wish... I had one particular talent and it would be to run gracefully.

I'm not really sure that this would be a talent, but it is the only thing that popped into my head. Have you ever seen the episode of Friends where Phoebe is running? You know, her arms & legs are all over the place? I feel like that when I run. I don't look like an antelope, but more like a rhinoceros running.

In addition to the whole awkwardness, I can't breathe. I have tried so many different methods of breathing & I can't do it. My legs aren't tired, but I feel like I can't draw a breath. Any suggestions?

If you could have a particular talent, what would you wish for?

I'm cracking up thinking of that FRIENDS episode! I'm sure you do not look like that!

I would like to just be able to run period. I have to stop after about 2 seconds!

This sounds like me. I've been told that my butt sticks out when I run...whatever that means. I've tried running programs several times, but I finally decided that I just wasn't meant to be a runner...only a very fast walker :)!

So..could Mr. Potts videotape you running and we can give you expert feedback? Strictly expert feedback, I swear! ;)

I wish I could sing. I am so so super envious of everyone who can sing and wish I could!

You are too funny, but what a wonderful talent to think about. I often forget about the little things :)

Holy crap, dude! I've been trying to comment your post for HOURS, but I've been having computer issues. And now I forgot what I was going to say :o(

But I laughed my ass off at the Phoebe imagery, lol.

You are so funny! By the way, I can't run gracefully either! My husband makes so much fun of me!

MCW said...

I hate the way I run too!!!

Chris and Danielle Lenz said...

Ok this is perfect! I feel like such an idiot when I run which is one of the main reasons that I don't do it more! Thanks for mentioning my giveaway!

Emma said...

Running is definitely an art. I have been a runner for over 6 years and there is definitely a form behind it etc...If I could have one particular talent...mmm...I would want to sing (and sound good)!! Xo

Lis said...

I totally know what you are talking about!! I look ridic running!! And I actually hate doing it - I know it's so good for you but I just can't find it fun, ever!!

I think I would pick to be able to sing. I'm no good, even my hubby laughs at me!!!

Brittany Ann said...

I feel like that, too! But my brother? My brother actually looks like that! He runs like a spazzy ballerina!

Amber said...

Haha you are so cute!! I have trouble with the whole breathing while running thing too, which is one of MANY reasons I don't run! I didn't do this wishful wed but if I had, I would wish I could dance (think So You Think You Can Dance).
