|Subject: ||RE: Slightly Overweight College Runner|
heres the deal yo wrote:
people are stupid and have no facts to back up their statements. i am similar in build and times 5'10 158 lbs. if i lose weight, as a college coach once suggested, i run slower. a good friend of mine is 5'10 168 lbs. yes 168 pounds. he runs 14:12 for the 5k. he once lost 10 lbs, but was so weak that he couldnt break 15. he put weight back on, and thats when he ran 14:30, 14:24, and 14:12. dont listen to peoples bullshit.
if you feel worse trying to lose weight, then dont do it. there is no point. if you feel better, then keep doing it.
please name your friend, I say bull-shite
