Yes – it’s true:: I Have Man Thighs
My friend Lora tells it like it is. She looked at me one day several years ago and exclaimed, “YOU have man thighs!” I looked down and frowned … sure enough, I have man thighs. I had never quite thought of them as that …
I looked back at her and gazed at her long and lean legs, then looked back down at my legs. Yep – my thighs are twice as big as hers. I have Man Thighs.
Even as a child, I have never had those cute petite girly girl type legs. My legs have always been muscular (although as teenager, I’m pretty sure I called them FAT). I have never really felt comfortable wearing skirts and I always prayed God would make me grow one more inch in my thighs and calves so everything was proportioned just right. It didn’t happen.
I know Lora meant her comment about my man thighs as a compliment. To her, she sees my thighs as the catalyst propelling me up the hills on our bike rides, or pulling away from her as we start our intervals in a bigger ring. Try as she might, Lora said she has never been able to build great leg muscles. For her, GOD gifted her MAN HANDS! (She tends to break everything with a twist, a turn, or a pull).

I have always dreamed of having model-like legs, long and lean, (just like Lora’s) … BUT, I am happy with the two strong ones that God gave me. Maybe it’s my age now, but at any rate, I will use my man thighs to their fullest potential.
