One day a few weeks ago I had a particularly tough and fantastic workout. I rode two tours on the Expresso bike trainer for a total of 14.8 HILLY miles. I left the gym sweaty, stinky and wet-haired…and promptly went to the grocery store.
While shopping and minding my own business I heard the two words no sweaty, stinky and wet-haired person wants to hear.
I looked up and saw a church friend. Her hair was in a ponytail while my short do was hidden under a baseball cap. Other than that, we looked like we’d both read the same memo on what to wear that day.
“Are you just coming from the gym?” I inquired.
“Yes, I’m so sweaty and gross,” she responded.
Later that day I thought about that quick exchange. I don’t run errands wearing workout clothes unless I actually worked out just prior. Both of us seemed to need to apologize for our appearance. Granted, neither of us was ready to hit a red carpet event, but we exemplified active lifestyles. We thought we looked sweaty and gross when we really looked…
FIERCE AND FABULOUS!
What about you? Do you run errands following a workout or do you first go home to shower and change? Does it bother you be in the check-out line with a sweaty someone, or does it not phase you? Hit me in the comments section.
