Like... ohhh... YOU'RE "runsfartherandfasterthanallofyou?" I always thought that guy would be... younger. Or whatever.
It is a bit disturbing when you meet some of these people though and find out their message board handle. Like... DAMN. I thought you were a guy all this time. (Which is why I have "girl" included in my handle).
Anyway, I'll log on and click away and see what all my Nashville Bitches are up to. It's good. It's all good.
Except yesterday... And, I KNEW that I shouldn't click on the topic... Because, not only am I a local runner message board junkie, I'm also totally a dramatic diva when it comes to running. So, when I saw the topic that talked about not being able to breath in this wretched heat and humidity... I knew that I shouldn't click. I mean, to be honest... the heat hasn't really been bothering me that much (maybe its the fact that I've been spending 90 minutes a day everyday for the past 30 days in a room heated to 105 degrees with 40% humidity stretching, pulling, and sweating my way into crazy ass poses. Literally). Sure, I'm sweating like crazy every morning... and wiping my brow constantly, but I've not been too miserable. Yet.
And then... because there was so little else of interest on the board... I clicked on it and had a typical dramatic diva Amy response:
WHAT? People are having problems breathing in this heat while they run????????? I had no idea! I haven't felt this way!!! What's wrong with me??? I'm a total wuss. I hate the heat... why am I able to breath? I must not really be able to breath, I must just be imagining that I can breath.
And just like that... I went from totally handling the heat (not loving it, but handling it) to utterly dying in the heat this morning. All I could think about was... am I huffing and puffing more than usual? What's wrong with my breath? Oh god... I'm getting weather-induced asthma. Is that even a legitimate condition? It is now. Definitely.
Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic. Just goes to show that my mind is about 85% of my problem. Hopefully I'll forget about my weather-induced asthma tomorrow. And hopefully I'll refrain from clicking on posts that talk about the weather
