Okay, so maybe I’m not officially on the team, and maybe I just saw them in the parking lot up at Hendrick’s Park in Eugene after my walk, and, I admit I can’t run quite as fast as any of them (since we all know U 0f O has one of the best track programs in the country, which means these are some of the top collegiate runners in America right here in this picture and surely one of them will win a gold medal and maybe be on a Wheaties box some day) and yes, I’m old enough to be their mother (I mean, they are just kids, after all) but it sure seems to me that they LIKE me (look how they’re smiling!) and I think if we all ask Phil Knight with a pretty please with sugar on top, maybe, just maybe, I could be the resident team Chubby Mommy Runner mascot.

Right?
