To all the single guys out there… This is why you should be dating a marathon girl…
1. Marathon girls are seriously fit. You all complain that girls don’t spend enough time on fitness/ harass you for spending too much time in the gym. A Marathon girl not only spends copious amounts of time running, but also will only date a guy that does the same. We can’t be running around with guys who don’t run. Obviously.
2. Dedication. If you are REALLY into Marathons you know it takes true dedication. This also usually means she puts dedication into all other parts of her life and maybe even into you… if you are lucky.
3. Marathon are (for the most part) “guy’s girls.” We can be showered and out the door in 20 minutes, hang to drink a beer, and watch the game with your friends. It’s that easy.
4. Independence. Realistically, a Marathon girl couldn’t care less whether she is single or not because she would rather be spending her extra time running anyway. That being said, she doesn’t NEED you in her life, but if you are lucky enough to be in her life it’s because she WANTS you there. Just don’t try to cut into her run time because that will definitely not fly.
5. Competitive nature. To do Marathons you have to be competitive not only with other people, but with yourself. This personality trait leads to all sorts of fun if you ask me… who wants a girl that when you dare her to do something just sits there and flakes out? BORING.
6. Marathon girls are more brazen. We aren’t scared to try new things, we are comfortable with who we are, we like adventure and we know we are bad asses. We will take you up on that bet and we don’t care about impressing other people. We are who we are, take it or leave it.
7. Diet – rest assured that not only does she have a smoking hot body because she eats healthy and runs so much, but she also knows how to cook. A girl who can cook = winning.
8. Personality. To do Marathons you have to possess certain personality traits — it’s definitely not for the closed minded or weak spirited. A Marathon girl will keep you on your toes. She has to be able to hang with the guys so she will more than likely be witty, sharp tongued, and love practical jokes. This, in my mind, is the Running girl’s best feature. Girls that have no personalities are like talking to a piece of paper — you are better off buying a pet fish and talking to that.
9. Marathon girls wear tiny outfits and will show up to hang out scantily clad in gym clothes and think nothing of it. She will walk in to watch the game after a hard interval session and when your friends all stare at her she’ll think she must clearly have something stuck in her teeth — her laid back, nonchalant, one of the guys attitude makes her oblivious to the fact that they are actually staring at her for any reason other than the fact that something is amiss.
10. OK, I am going to go there on #10: Physical fitness may lead to better sex. So if the first nine reasons why you should be dating a Marathon girl weren’t enough… this should really drive it home for you. Pun intended.
