Feeling a bit smug

Friday, May 5, 2006 by Michelle

Eons ago I was a fairly fast walker, but that has waned over the years as I’ve put on more and more weight. Now that I’m getting fit, the speed has gone up as the dress size has gone down. My little four-banger engine has been nitro-injected!

Case in point: I was walking downtown the other day with my husband Chris (5’11”) and is good friend Bob (6’3″) and they couldn’t keep up to me. Two thin long-legged guys couldn’t keep up with a 5’3″ overweight woman! “I’m getting tired,” and “would you slow down for Pete’s sake!” whined the two of them more often than I care to share. And let me tell you, I felt smug like you wouldn’t believe. After years of dawdling behind everyone, I’m now too quick for them… but don’t tell my fitness trainer I’m feeling smug; he’s bound to humble me with an increase in my treadmill terror speed!
