OK...so the title is a wee bit misleading.
Those teachers had to run the track, go cross country skiing, play dodge ball, and teach us how to run wind sprints (oh the joy!) nearly every period of the day. They were fit...or at least I thought they were. I didn't have no fattie teaching me phys. ed EVER. I mean, truthfully I hated phys. ed....but lets face it, runts are not cut out for physical activity...and I was runt-ish....but in a cute way....except when my mother insisted that I get that perm. : (
So the other day I was sitting on the bench at the school (no, I'm not a creeper, I was waiting for my child to get out of school!), when I see the phys. ed teacher hollering at the older kids on which way they should run. Then I saw the teacher.... chunky, I mean probably only slightly above average-ly chunky....but chunky nonetheless. They definitely hadn't seen their share of physical activity .... well at least not in the last decade.
Now, don't be saying I'm a hater. I'm fine with every size of person. I don't care how big or small you are....unless we are in a picture together...if you're a small biotch...you better not be standing next to me....I hate that. But shouldn't the phys. Ed teacher be the image of fitness?! Would you go to a personal trainer that had a spare tire (that's for those of you that love to sweat, myself, I have a self proclaimed allergy to it....remember.). No,you wouldn't....or at least if you did, you'd expect a discount.
So...whats your verdict....fit teachers for phys.ed or fatties?
