It Pays to Be a Runner

I'm not even going to lie.

I was told by someone tonight that I have a great butt. Someone from my past that was comfortable enough with me to tell me this even though he probably won't spend much time in my future. Someone who I know is sincere and really meant it as a compliment and a way of encouraging me to keep up my running. Someone who at one time meant a lot to me and that I now consider a dear friend from my past.

I totally went home grinning. It brought back specific memories of other times when my butt has been commented on, even the time when it was that one guy from NYC that I chatted with briefly at the Florabama and he yelled out "Nice @$$" as I walked away. I turned back, smiled, and said thanks.

It's a compliment that some may feel is inappropriate whether given by a friend or a stranger, but as a runner? As a runner, it's a compliment that I love to hear... maybe even more so than when people tell me I have great legs. :)

It pays to be a runner.

I agree. Getting compliments and knowing it's because of running makes it so nice to hear. :)

Niiiice!

I once had a girl tell me she wished she had my legs ... whilst my wife was standing beside me.

Very strange! But something runners/athletes get from time to time from those who are more sedentary!

Have a great Christmas and wonderful New Year 2010.

Cheers, PB :-)

Hee hee. It does pay to be a runner! Every day I feel like I start to look more and more like one.
