Re: Where's the Girl Power?

"obnoxious and arrogant?" is there a story here?

Indeed. See Stuff and Nonsense "CrossFit makes many people arrogant." :stir:

I'll have you know that I was obnoxious and arrogant loooooong before I started CrossFit.

This was exactly my point. And, then the working-out-shirtless comments started. And, then someone brought up my tat. So, Stephanie and I used our Girl Power and changed our avatars .

I just said I didn't understand why men of cf shave there chests and arms but I am nobody. If it would cut my Fran time in half I would shave everything including my head.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

I would (and have) only shave visible body hair for functional purposes, like if I were to do another tri. Well, I did it when I was a bike messenger, too, but that was just an elitist biker thing...but I could really pull it off.

Funny thing, though...they don't teach guys how to shave legs. A half hour into a shower and the water's turned cold and all the blood flowing down the drain is making me light-headed. I learned then that you don't START with a razor.

So, Tamara, if I say something about your tat does that mean you're going to change your avatar again? Nice tat. :stir:

I might shave my head for a 2:00 Grace. Yeah...I would.

I am just picturing you shaving your legs and almost passing out in the process.

I did take a very nice @ss pic last night, but I have a feeling it crosses the line of what the moderators would find appropriate for an avatar.

Pics or it didn't happen. A warning from the mods will be worth it.

you didn't happen to see what I wrote about you on FB, did you?

B-b-but, I just changed my avatar! And, this one is so CrossFit appropriate. I'd hate to rock the boat. I was actually considering posting the @ss pic to FB, LOL.
