The athlete in my life is a triathlete who ran for over 10 years.I am an occasional jogger, exercising purely for vanity.After a bit, we both return home, having accomplished our missions - he, a serious workout and me, three stores, six items on hold and a quick glance through three magazines at the local bookstore. I must have asked him 50 times what a PR was and could he go over one more time the world records for various events?Now I know what a four-minute mile means to a runner - and to the rest of the world.A group of his college running friends annually re-race each other at The Battle of the Not-So-Super Stars.Each year, those who are no longer able to maintain the daily workouts are able to revisit the compet-itive element they once shared.
Whether you’re looking for love locally or internationally, we are committed to helping you find the perfect match, no matter where in the world they may be.Unfortunately, having an athlete for a boyfriend or girlfriend and not being one can cause the non-athlete to wonder if the athlete would prefer to date one of their own kind.It would be a relationship with another who also thought daily about workouts, beating their current times and how to get rid of obstacles that might prevent them from missing a training session.Any other date you have in your diary for this is WRONG.Come on July 28th however and we will all be there at the same time, which I’m sure you will agree is the better way.When I am in an area where our paths may cross, I keep a watchful eye out for him.In places where we may run into each other, I run like a gazelle with the wind at her back. A minute ceases to be a minute and becomes a measurement of how much training went into creating the difference of one minute in a race. When I first met him, he would talk about times with me while I listened in a daze.What is a typical day like for such an unlikely couple? Upon waking, the first thought in his mind is whether the pool will feel warm or cold when he dives in.I get up wondering which coffee shop I should go to - the one with the sweet bread or the one with the bagels?Also, in the dream, I would have a firm, athletic body, developed through my dedication to antique store shopping. The value of focus and discipline takes on a meaning that is carried over into my hobbies.I have become a very disciplined antique shopper: racing from store to store.
