“I want your thighs!”

I received an email this week from a friend of mine that simply said, “I want your thighs.”

I had to laugh. really? They were referring to a cropped version of this imagepicture, taken at the finish of the only half marathon I’ve done this year. It was the first weekend in June, and was slated to be my “A” half for 2012. It turned out to be closer to my LMNOP half. Anyway, this isn’t about that.

I wrote back, “what”?

“I will do anything to have your thighs.”

Ok, I can work with that. So I replied, “Squats, lunges, running, box jumps, and more running.”

“Well, anything except that shit.”

Seriously? Well, my friend was half kidding with that response. They know well enough that those are exactly the things that I’ve been doing, and that they would likely benefit as well. It just made me laugh.

Apparently, someone else wasn’t impressed, either. image


Happy Friday, everyone. Have a great weekend!


  1. Hello Gene,
    Just a quick message to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘anytime’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners & #Marathoners #FitnessProfessionals who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned…)

    All the very best for the rest of 2012 and beyond Gene. Look forward to hearing from you…


  2. Someone wrote asking me for my thighs last week. I told them to look elsewhere. Huh, who knew they'd end up here.

  3. Mikayla...come on...:-)

    Box jumps? Ouchy!

  4. McKayla is such a hater. She secretly wants your thighs, too.

  5. Greetings from Idaho! I'm bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the knowledge you provide here and can't wait to take a look when I get home.
    I'm shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .
