It's never too late to be what you might have been. --George Eliot

This blog is about my journey as an asthmatic, hypothyroid, formerly plus-sized endurance athlete. It's occasionally interrupted with things that have nothing to do with that or whining about my weight and horrible eating habits. "You're never too old to be what you might have been" --George Eliot

My limeric - late, as always...

Here's my entry to the tri-blogger limeric-mania. Such as it is.

I'd like my entry cast.
But I fear that that I was not fast
So here is my rhyme
and just like every time
I fear I'll be Dead F*****g Last.

The Story of GeekGirl
This Athena was just such a mess.
And ate way too much, I confess.
I didn't like sweat
But to get thinner, I bet
I'd rather move more than eat less

Most of the weight I've now lost.
And emotional baggage I've tossed
And you know that i'm slow
But you'd better know
The number of finish lines I've crossed.



  1. Great limerick...but you ain't slow!

  2. I beg your pardon.....but this time someone else will behind you crossing the finish line. I'm saying we're good for a 15:00:00 finish.

  3. Awww..that was very good! Best of luck at IMCDA!

  4. Love it!
    You are truly creative
