Problems of Natural Athletes

Excerpts from a real conversation:

Her: “I’m just not sure I can run this race in under 4 hours.”

Me: “What kind of pace are you running for your long training runs?”

Her: “My last 20 was at 9:05 pace, but I had a problem with my calf cramping. Maybe it’s because I was dehydrated and tired because I was up sick all night the night before with food poisoning?”

Me: “Uhhhh…you’re sick.”

It later comes out that she ran a 1:46 half marathon when 5 months pregnant…and climbed the Matterhorn at age 15.

Freak.
