    But I Am Fit, and There's a Difference

    I am a farmer, and I love hiking. I can do farmwork or just walk for hours. I have been known to walk for 12 hours without a break. I'm fitter than all my friends my age. I've always been a good walker and had plenty of endurance for physical labour. But athletic? Hell no...

    I Was Called a Sissy

    I was totally inept at any sport I tried to do. It got so I would hide out from others, feign illness Just to not be involved in any sport.  I was so bad genetic girls were better than I would ever be. I played my own sport. It was called dressing as a girl in my...

    I Hated Playing Sports

    I hated gym class in high school. Hated it. I stank at every sport I tried. In badminton the "bird" (or whatever it's called) would come at me and I'd completely miss it with the racket. I've been hit with every kind of ball invented. Once, a girl hit me so hard in the face with...

    Be Encouraged!

    Athleticism, and heck, even a liking for sports at all, is not necessary to succeed! I have often been made fun of and ridiculed in P.E. for not being athletic, not being able to run fast, not being physically strong, not working out, etc. But just remember: No one has...

    Not At All

    I am not in the least bit athletic. I have never been very good at sports, and usually if I do play them, I get hurt, because I'm a clumsy person. Me and sports just don't mix unless it's watching them. Playing them just isn't for me. The only sport I actually like to play is...

    Yeah, I hate PE classes.

    I enjoyed them in elementary but growing up, I started hating it. I guess dancing and sports weren't my forte. Although I have a few sports that I enjoy playing (i.e. Basketball, Badminton) I just couldn't bring myself to join teams, preferably because I don't play that well (I...

    Dance Team

    In high school, I tried out for the dance team for three straight years. I was cut every time. And, there were no major shocking klutz misadventures. I just wasn't good enough. Well, OK. Now, I'm an accountant. I'm thinking about moonlighting with the IRS and Audit Stalking all...

    Dodgeball

    I don't know what it was - dodgeball or kickball, or if there is a difference really - but the very first time I tried to play in elementary school, nobody bothered to teach me the rules and I took a ball to the face. Then, when they tried to teach us baseball, I couldn't...

    My Pe Teacher Hates Me...

    He says I should participate. Help out my team. But something I've learned over the years is... I suck at anything to do with athletics. Sure, I can do ballet, but I can't catch a ball to save my life. Forget running, too...I have a pathetically small lung capacity. When I...

    X Soldier Too

    This is so funny since I have spent much of my life as a soldier.  Now I love to swim but that is about it.  I hated everyday getting up early in the morning and having to go in and exercise with my unit.  We had to run everyday and I hate running.  Don't get...

    my idea of good exercise is walking

    and occasionally hiking, or vigorous bike ride. I don't like exercise that is too fast and rigorous. Moderately paced is good. I could care less about sports. They don't interest me at all. I'm not a fitness buff either. Dancing and a little gymnastics are fun, but I don't...

    In all honesty, I think that there's a bit of a voyeur in everyone, even if they don't want to admit it. I'm simply admitting to being a bit of a voyeur myself.
