Why compete????

“I am sure I can lift heavier weights than you”, a random lady told me at the gym.
“I am sure you can”, I replied, and proceeded with my workout.
“And I am not even a marathoner like you”, she added unnecessarily.

Lady, when will you realize, if realize you ever will, that neither of us is in competition with the other. And if my presence inspires you to lift weights heavier than I do myself, nobody will be happier than I. Because few things give me as much pleasure as seeing women taking care of their fitness and health.
