Funny Foto Friday: McKayla is NOT Impressed

I had a great run this morning after taking the day off yesterday. 10 miles at a pace of 7:11 / mile. I was due for a good one.  The sucky thing about being a running coach is that I know when I'm missing the mark in my training and right now I'm missing hard core.  I'll get on track, but I've had a few sub par weeks in a row that will need to be quickly rectified.  FAST.

--------------------------------------------

The Olympics are HARD.  Being a full time athlete is not just a "job" but it is a lifestyle.  Day in and day out these men and women eat breath and sleep sport.  But, often times it isn't men and women but boys and girls - women's gymnastics especially.  With that, maybe comes a weee bit of immaturity.

McKayla Maroney was the shoe in favorite to win gold during the individual vault.  Unfortunately, she fell on the landing and ended up with silver.  She was NOT happy.  I mean really, who can blame her??  I pout around for days after I have a shitty race.  But, not only did McKayla have a dirty scowl shortly after the performance but during the medals ceremony as well.  Enter the internet. http://mckaylaisnotimpressed.tumblr.com/ Enjoy.  Happy Friday!

I might have my mind in the gutter, but even funnier than her face was that shot of the wrestlers.... they look like the are doing the nasty, dog style. And she doesn't approve. lmao

She was certainly a sore loser. Honestly, few of those gymnasts looked like they were having any fun at all!

You just need 1 good run to wipe out all those weeks of sub-par, shitty runs. At least for me.

We need combat gymnastics starring McKayla Maroney. Wait a minute: Gymkata 2!

Nelly said...

Lol on Maroney! Every time I saw her I wondered whether she was having fun or not, she always had a scowl on her face.

Jen said...

Omg I love the wrastlin' one.

I can only imagine her disappointment but the scowl...not so good, perhaps she was trying not to cry hysterically! No one is perfect especially a young person who has lost the dream! Cute meme, by the way!

Hilare. It seems like the Gymnasts from 1996 had a lot more fun than they do now.
