How To…

How to…

1. … creep out women in the gym.

Tell a woman her form is like art because it’s so perfect. Ugh. He told me this while leaving only 2 feet of distance between us. Talk about “too close for comfort!” ***Bonus points if you’re the same age or older than the woman’s father

2. … blow you hard earned cash.

Try to be responsible by ordering a small soy cappuccino instead of a small skinny cappuccino, which costs $2. 69. Do not consider a possible price difference. Fork over $3.69 for the same size beverage. It was ‘soy’ expensive.

3. … poorly manage carb cravings when training for an endurance event.

Don’t step on the scale for weeks. When your pants fit differently, tell yourself it’s muscle.

4. … make yourself feel better about major fashion crimes.

Make your hair really big, and wear eye-catching jewelry. These distract from the cross trainers that you wore to work. (Yes, I changed after being at work a few hours, but I did get some significant wear out of these before my boss arrived.)


5. … whine about things that aren’t your fault but are still totally your fault.

Sign up for a race in February, and complain about the cold now that Old Man Winter has decided to show his ugly face. Seriously, what was I thinking???

  5. I step on the scale a little more this training schedule than my last. Because during my last, I was also traning for a 94-floor stairclimb. I blamed the stairmaster on my growing thighs.
