The Olympics is winding down, Michael Phelps won his handful of medals and now he can bask in tons of endorsements.
I keep thinking of something I read - that for someone who's so fit and health-oriented, that the first thing he wanted when his events and training were over was fast food?
I confess that I love McDonald's and Burger King fish sandwiches. I don't eat them often anymore, but I still like them.
So the king of swimming says he likes fast food. He's normal - and lucky as he likely has a fantastic metabolism. I bet even when he's not doing monster workouts during training, he still burns it off. The rest of us look (or think of it) and gain.
Everyone gasped, of course. It seemed a sacrilege that someone so athletic admitted something that amounts to a secret sin. It's kind of funny actually. Even athletes have their sweet tooth or food indulgences. They're the best at what they do, but they're also a little fallible. It makes the rest of us feel a whole lot better.
