Being In Shape
Do you think you are in shape? Of course no one could think they are fit after watching the Olympics every day where you can see all these athletes who have trained their whole life for this very moment. You must be justifie that by the fact that they are constantly training and that you simply can not compete with them and we totaly agree with you. But what would you say if the person who is more in shape than you is several times older than you? Imagine competing in the 100 meter race with your grandmother and find out that she has won, you would immediately think that you are living the scene from the movie “Cocoon”?
