Those who know me know that I work in lower Manhattan. I commute to work via the Long Island Rail Road and most days I take the subway downtown. This story involves my subway ride last Monday.
Sunday I had a workout that seemed to take more out of my than I expected. Perhaps it was a culmination of the training load that I have been putting on my body or perhaps it was just a bad day. In any event when I got up to go to work on Monday I was still toast. Luckily Monday was a scheduled rest day from training but unfortunately I still needed to go into the office to make big rocks into little rocks (or something like that).
When I got on the subway car in the morning I glanced at the other passengers already in the car and noticed something odd. Everyone was ugly. Not one or two trolls with a mix of mostly plain people. Everyone on the car was ugly. Everyone.
I'm typically only on the train a few stops. Some uglies got off and uglier people got on. I then thought how odd it was that no one had any redeeming physical attributes. I hoped to forget this crowd and immediately the images of these fuglies was etched into my memory like scratchiti. I tried to avoid eye contact for the rest of the ride by looking at the floor.
Later that day I wondered if I was somehow caught in the black hole of ugly. Then I actually wondered if perhaps somehow the training load was impacting my perspective. If it was, what else could it be impacting? Could this be a side effect of my training load?
Those questions will go unanswered for a while. In the meantime I hope I don't randomly get on the fugly train again. No one deserves that.
This cracked me up. When you start seeing everyone at your HOUSE as ugly, it's time to reconsider the training load. :)
post made me laugh. "I see UGLY people...."
This is an awesome post. I only wish there were pictures, but people might have been annoyed if you'd started randomly taking pictures of them...
I am laughing!
I wonder what people are going to look like to you after your Ironman.
