perhaps you caught RWD's blurb on runners being more attractive than the general population. for the most part, i agree. i think i am a more attractive person because of me running, too! obviously it helps stay in shape and creates awesome legs, but there is something very attractive of being able to drop "im training for a marathon" in conversation. provided their response is impressed rather than intimidated. or maybe a bit of both.
but there are some things that running do to me that make me much less attractive. my feet, for example. constantly blistered and bruised.
and there are moments of complete disgustingness that have come to be part of my life that concern me. for example....
yesterday afternoon i worked out, went to a mtg at school (still sweaty and in gym clothes), went home, ate dinner, watched 24, went to bed.
this morning i woke up at 5.45, headed to the gym, and ran 3 miles. as i was running, i could smell myself. then i realized, hey, i never showered after my work out yesterday. in fact, im not even sure i washed my face.
i took a very thorough shower this morning to make up for it. so no worries, im not smelly now. but i am concerned my lowered standards of clean.
cinco dias hasta el martian half marathon!!
(and yes, my dear colie, we do need to hang out asap. lets plan on running after spring break! and getting margaritas!)
