Sweat

Funny Story.

Dallas' Grandma is possibly the fourth greatest thing that has happened to me because of my marriage.  (Dallas = Will = Annie > Grandma).  Grandma K. is a total gym rat.  She is there 5-6 days a week, and oftentimes she goes more than once a day.  She's 74.

Awesome, yes?

That fact only makes this statement more humorous.

"When I go to the gym there's all of these women working out everywhere and they are so sweaty.  It's disgusting."  
-Grandma K.

She was there when I came in at my first half marathon in October 2010.  I'm thinking she was mortified when she saw what I looked like.

Haha! This post is too funny. She would be disgusted for sure if she were to see the participants in my Bootcamp. Part of it, baby!

I have wanted to try bootcamp so bad! I'm a weakling. You would surely have to scrape me off the ground a quarter of the way through... or maybe after the first set of pushups.

Haha, your grandma sounds awesome! I bet she has the best gym outfits..that never get sweaty. :)

Amylee said...

She totally does! And she will wear it all day. That's something I could never do... unless smelling like an onion turns out to be a good thing ;)

Your grandma totally rocks!!! I love seeing/hearing about active elderly people... there is this 80+ year old lady that I see every now and then swimming (well trying to swim:)) and she told me the other day she does Zumba 2 times a week. So cool:)

Hahah that's funny! I guess she doesn't sweat when she works out! I love older people, they are so cute!

I swear this is the same race my sister did for her first half marathon because she has almost that exact same picture. (Oh, she did it in 2009 though.)

2010 was the first year they did this race, but there are lots in Park City, and they are all like this. At least the pictures anyway!

Thanks for using the database logo on your sidebar. I like the title of your blog. I like to run hard (but it also has gotten me injured).

Grandmas say some of the most candid things and you just have to smile because it's grandma saying it!

Um, I love your Grandma K! Like, a lot. But, I'm also that nasty, smelly, super sweaty girl in the gym who she says is disgusting, and hey, she's totally RIGHT! I gross myself out too!
