Tales from the Locker Room

As you have read in the past, I have an issue with the locker room at the YMCA I swim at while away on business. To briefly recap, I find it bizarre that the old men (60+) walk around free as a bird, junk swinging in the wind. I'm sure they are just too old to care, but please guys cover up! Anyway on to the story....

I went for a swim Friday morning and the locker room was unusually crowded and full of the aforementioned good ol' boys. As I was changing, I pulled out my clothes from my gym back and to my horror one of my wife's knee high stockings (ask me and I'll share with you my overall displeasure that my wife actually wears these) fell out and dropped, quite noticeably, onto the bench that I was sharing with two of my naked counterparts. Of course they saw this and I got a few raised eyebrows and a chuckle. Trying to make light of the occurrence I said, "I just like how smooth these feel on my calves" and shoved it back into my bag. I got a few grumbles, a snicker and I think one of them actually believed me. Oh well.


  1. If it makes you feel any better the 60 plus women do the same thing at my Y ;)

  2. LOL!!!! I am really laughing my ass off dude! I think you handled it great! I would have turned beat red-- packed quickly, and ran the hell out of there!

    Also-- Great job on your last 5k!

  3. Welcome, unathleticrunner. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that experiences these mind-altering locker room events. I'm looking forward to reading about your running.
