Fitz
Somebody recently described me thus:

"Fitz is like an old petrol lawn-mower: a bit smelly but he has a great engine and he just runs and runs and runs..."

Anyone else had any nice "compliments?"

I've been described as "a machine" on occasion.

I assume it's in the same way that an old lawnmower with rusty blades is technically a machine.

Pootle
"Wow you've got massive thighs."

From husband. He later went onto explain he actually meant my quads/calves are large and well defined, not quite how it came out though. Thanks, dear.

One of my colleagues said "I saw you trundling along the other day."

Not "I saw you running with what appeared to be effortless gazelle-like grace". Oh no. Trundling. I trundle, apparently.

:(

I'm a bit like you Pootle - my physio says I have sprinter's thighs.

I just think they are fat!
