JFK Pointers

For some reason this absolutely cracked me up: "... You are not allowed to drop out because you are tired. You are only allowed to drop out if you are injured. You are not allowed to pretend you are injured.."

More thoughts later!

"Second, third and fourth winds are almost guaranteed."

make sure you remember that one, elizabeth! just wander up to some random person and tell them how you met your hubby, that should do the trick! ;)

Are you doing this? A buddy of mine is doing it too; he's French. And loud and fast. You won't be able to miss him.

What if it's a fatigue related injury? Do you then have to walk it out?

when i was in high school, so many of the girls on the x-c team milked their shin splints for everything. it got around that you could say shin splints and you got out of any speed work out.

that disturbed me so much i never recognized my own a few years ago and am still embarrassed to say i had them. pretending to be injured... SCARS PEOPLE FOR LIFE.

... same morons who pretended to be injured also always seemed to be having their period. convenient. guess jfk couldn't say that pretending to have your period is not allowed. men can't say period. PERIOD!
