Training for competition

I went on a running date with a dame who sometimes competes in marathons and other races. I told her that I was thinking of signing up for an upcoming local triathlon, butn I checked out the competition, and I have much greater chances of finishing in the top 20 in an upcoming hot dog eating contest. I said that I have a natural talent for gluttony, and and I can out-eat everyone I know.

I had eaten the biggest burrito I had ever seen. It slowed down my running, but it was good training for the eating contest. It would be hard to train for both the eating contest and the triathlon, and I was thinking that my talents were better directed at the eating contest.

She was not impressed.
