Yes, I Am Obsessed With My Body Image

Recently I have been told, "I thought you might be a runner. You walk like a runner." And at Masters, "You must be a tri-guy." I am not really sure what it is about the way I walk or how I look in the pool that gives me away, but apparently it's something. I don't have any tats or wear any race paraphernalia. Maybe it's my "muscly", shaved legs, whatever. The whole "walking like a runner" thing is even more baffling. I certainly don't walk on my toes or like I am in constant pain or like I have a steel rod up my butt. I do however always wear my HRM and am constantly checking my pace. (Not really.) 

Keep an eye out for me at any races. I will be the tri-guy who looks like he should be there and walks like a runner.

It's much better to be a runner or a triathlete than a swimmer. Swimmers are weird.

It's gotta be the calves. I've been told thats what gives me away.

Hmmm, I think that's probably not a bad thing. I'm gonna say better than someone telling you that you look like a shot-put-thrower or a sumo wrestler! :)
