Hecklers…don’t ya just love ‘em?!!

Dear Diary

Day 26 REDJanuary…

So today I was heckled for the first time (tbf I’m surprised it’s taken this long!)…young lad called out to me across the road, patted his stomach and asked if I was running to get rid of all my fat?… “haha you’ll be there all night if you are!”

How joyful…

He got a bit confused when I thanked him for his comments and said they were much appreciated… he walked off on a right old strop!!

What an arsehat!

Well I don’t care what I look like or whether I wobble as I plod along – I ran another 2miles tonight and I feel great!

Yes yes, I am a larger lady…thanks for noticing. What you failed to mention young man is that I’m also fabulous and a phenomenal woman…but don’t worry, you can tell me that next time 😉

***

I love the poem Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou…speaks to me on many levels and when I’m in need of a bit of lifting up it’s what I read…here it is put to some music in a campaign by This Girl Can 😊

  1. Nice response! I get the odd bit of heckling when I go to work by scooter – usually along the lines of “Aren’t you a bit old for that?” If I’m feeling benevolent I’ll smile sweetly and say “You’re only as old as you feel,” but what I really want to say is “Mind your own business, you joyless individual!”
