    I do enjoy watching running and triathlons. Running is my thing and would love to do a tri someday. I go through sort of a progression watching that stuff; admiration, envy, a little more admiration then total disgust at what amazing athletes they are while I am, well, me.

    It is a full time job competing at these levels. They don't do much else other than train, eat, and sleep, I don't think!

    Not to mention the dude with the ghetto blaster running along behind you playing inspirational movie music.

    Exactly!!!
    My husband tells me from time to time to train and enter the masters competition and I tell him that I know he means well and tries to encourage me and I thank him that he believes in me and that I am gratefull for that.
    I tell him that I am happy with the little running that I do and I like that I can control my running and I don't want running to take control of my life because I do like to have a life besides training and do other things whenever I want.
    Or maybe I don't have ambitions of becoming a better runner.

    Sorry No Darkand. I was just being a smarta$$. I always get a kick out of that kind of footage, the lone hero, roller-skating across the Sahara or something, while surrounded by guys doing the same thing while holding equipment and thinking about lighting, angle, etc.

    I hate it when real life get in the way of my fitness aspirations. Seriously, I am so thankful to have a job.

    I think I'll start taking applications for a mobile inspirational music engineer (level 1) next week.
