Running with friends always makes it more enjoyable as the talk of eating is the subject of many of our conversations. This is where we can :stretch" the boundaries a bit. Seeing as we are running & burning calories, it is acceptable to talk about food. Too often we only get to have a few packets of GU although this morning, we were treated to pretzels, Cliff Blocks & other sundry treats @ Katheryn's house.
I will have to say that the one odor that constantly finds the olfactory is perfume! I mean come on ladies, what's the point? Are you trying to meet your soul mate or impress that handsome dude in your running group? I mean, we are RUNNING, duh! We are expected to sweat. It an be kinda sexy to be hot & sweaty amongst those of the opposite sex.
I had a good conversation with Patti this weekend & she suggested that I cut our the feminist talk & to quit while I was ahead. I need to just get over it & accept that women WILL RUN with perfume & make-up.
I am not getting on to you ladies, it is just that I find it very odd. From a guys perspective, it is impressive enough that you are out there running & taking care of your body & trying to stay healthy. The perfume only detracts from the natural smells of life.
Until next time.
