        Yes.  Context is important.

         

        I've found myself checking out certain girls at races *without* thinking sexual things, but just because they're so athletic.  It's kind of weird to catch yourself admiring someone's body without ulterior motives.

         

        To some extent, that's the whole point of the body issue.  I find it fascinating to see the bodies of both male and female athletes from various sports just to see how they have conditioned themselves for their particular sport.  A runner's body looks very different from a football player's body yet both bodies are supremely well conditioned.

        Short term goal: 17:59 5K

        Mid term goal:  2:54:59 marathon

        Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life.  (I started running at age 45).

          That's exactly how I look at it myself. And I don't see a naked man or a naked woman, I see naked athletes.

            It is amazing how each athlete's body has adapted to it's "profession", showing the variety of builds and styles the human body can obtain with training and determination.

                On a semi-related note, when I was teaching, the 4th grade teacher did this project where the kids made a collage of the things that made them happy or something like that.  The teacher was a runner and so a lot of the kids were inspired by her and put athletic pictures on their collages.  One girl put a picture of a girl working out in shorts and a sports bra and one of the parents complained because it was too provocative.  It was like one of the pictures you'd see in Runner's World or Fitness Magazine.
