Why Single People Should Workout

Since I started running I notice certain things about people. I notice calf muscles on men and women. I notice 13.1 and 26.2 bumper stickers on cars. I notice when someone at the grocery store, mall, Target, etc. is wearing a specific brand of running shoes like Brooks or Mizuno. I notice biking/running trails while driving in other cities and states. Mostly though, I notice how many really really good looking people there are who attend running and racing events.

Building Steam is a local training program for people who are training to run the Steamboat Classic 4 mile event in Peoria, IL. The participants are mostly women. There's literally hundreds of participants in this program. If you are a single man, this is where you should be. It's not rocket science. There are two couples that I know of who actually met at Building Steam and later were married. I'm sure there have been more, I've only been involved with BS for three years though.

Spartan Races are fun, challenging, and filled with a ridiculous amount of good looking people.

I'm not going to bash anyone who meets/met their significant other in a bar. That's where I met mine. I was just a small town girl living in my lonely world, he was a city boy born and raised west of Detroit ... you know the story. However, if the pool you've been fishing from is not providing great results, then maybe it's time to tread some new waters. Join a gym, training program, running group, trail running group, cross fit class, swimming class, kickboxing class, hiking group, biking group, WHATEVER, just get moving and get a look at what is out there.  I don't even know why I'm putting all of this info here. I should be selling it online and making millions right now! You all are getting it for free because I'm awesome like that.

I just couldn't NOT put this pic in... you're welcome, ladies. ;)
Seriously guys, you think Ryan Gosling is so hot right now just because he has nice abs??? Wrong. Rumor has it he joined a ballet class that was mostly filled with girls. Women love that. Hot celebrity guy being sweet to little kids while learning a graceful dance... yeah, that is gold right there. He will be getting women off of that move for decades. He may as well have saved 100 kittens from impending doom while professing his love for long walks on the beach.

So, the point here is: if you are single and looking for love, GET MOVING. At the very least you will get some healthy exercise. You may even make some wonderful friends, and live a happier life.

Peace, Love, Happiness!



  1. I also have to say, as a single person, that I have never felt more confident and sexy as I do now. I didn't feel either of those things before I started this journey to get fit and healthy. It's easier to date when you feel good about yourself. :-)

    1. Whoo-hoo! Great point, Aliscon! Good for you! :)

  2. This post is so funny yet so true! There are a lot of hot guys/girls at the races. You never know who you will meet while trying something new or just doing something you enjoy!
