I am totally stealing this from Another Mother Runner. I tend to be a rather serious person, but I do have a sense of humor and like to lighten things up every once in a while.
As you run by an aid station in a race, what miracle would you like? Let your mind “run” wild!
An instant wash/dry
Even during the winter, if I’m running hard, I’m sweating, too. And especially during the winter, once I stop, I get so chilled! Which is part of why I sort of like running in my neighborhood (actually, I really don’t, but it’s convenient) — I get to go right home and got out of my wet clothes.
So I’d love to run by an aid station and magically have all that sweat and salt disappear and just feel fresh again.
Instant Medical Attention
I’d love to run by an aid station and have an automatic chiropractor adjustment, massage, anti chafing cream application, blisters magically disappear — basically have whatever happens to be bothering me instantly be fixed.
So I can keep running without injuring myself and feel great at the end of the race.
Forget having to stop and grab a cup and try to drink it without spilling it all over yourself (unless it’s a hot day and then I do pour water on myself). Whatever way you choose to carry hydration, it just magically refills at the aid station . . . without you having to stop.
Self Adjusting Clothes
We all know how hard it can be to dress for a race that starts cold and ends warm. Or one that is much warmer than the forecast.
So how about your jacket magically appears/disappears without you having to take it off? Go from tights to capris or shorts or a skirt without mooning everyone? Tank to a tee?
Stock Up on Whatever You Forgot
This is for that first aid station: forgot a water bottle? Fuel? Sunglasses? How about it just magically appears as you run by the first aid station?
What miraculous aid station are you wishing for?
