  1. Hmm. She’s kind of scrawny. I have to admit, this physique is not what I’m after. However, she probably runs VERY fast and I have no intention of doing that so I think I’m safe. :o)


  2. She does look scrawny- but seriously athletic non? And she won the New York City marathon 10 months after giving birth to her daughter. Crazy!

Athleticism for me involves a lot more overall body strength, often typified in elite soccer players such as her:
