Don’t Say we are “Freakin’ Hot”!
Recently, during a conversation with some fellow ultra girls, the topic of the frequent intrusion of douchebag men in our daily running came up. As ultra chicks, we are approached by as many, if not more, loser men than the typical female. Maybe this is due to our similar levels of testosterone, or maybe its our short running shorts showcasing our killer legs. We don’t know. What we do know is that there are just some things you should never say to a woman. So if you’re a loser male specimen that tries to hit up the runner girl circles, listen up and take note to avoid getting a serious butt kicking.
WE ARE NOT TO BE GAWKED AT ON THE TRAILS LIKE YOU ARE SURPRISED WE HAVE SKILLS. Hey, douchebag, guess what.. I TRAIN MY BUTT OFF. I work 100 times harder than you do, and I have the skills to prove it. The fact that there is a pink border on my tread has nothing to do with the truth that I can completely SCHOOL you on any trail on any given day. You acting shocked at such an ability is embarrassing for you, and rude to me. Pull yourself together.
DON’T SAY WE ARE “FREAKIN HOT”. Call me old fashioned, but telling a married woman via internet, in person, or anywhere, that she is “hot” is insulting. This language is inappropriate to relay to any woman other than your significant other, or maybe Angelina Jolie or something. It makes us feel uncomfortable, and it makes our husbands irate. It is in your best interest to just not say anything at all. Or at least stick to the more comfortable terms that you would say to your daughter, like “pretty” or “beautiful”– said in the presence of said female’s man. This is your best bet if you really feel the need to say something, because anything else will warrant an arrest for our husbands after they beat you to a pulp, with us laughing hard watching in the background.
WE WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE MEN DURING A RACE. Don’t baby us. Babying us is a douchey thing to do because it shows that you think you are the dominant sex. You think that if we are capable of pushing our bodies for 100 miles straight that we need your help with anything? Ha! We are not imbeciles, and we know what we are doing. If we are suffering and for some reason whining, tell us to shut up and keep moving like you would your running buddies. We don’t take kindly to pampering.
DON’T HIT ON US. Pounding the pavement in a sports bra and shorts is a matter of comfort in the heat and in no way warrants an invitation for you to try to get our attention. Shouting, whistling, making disgusting guttural growls, etc all should be avoided no matter what. Nothing else needs to be said here, just obey this simple rule if you want all of your limbs to stay in tact.
…….Stay smart, my friends.
