    I hope she's joking about "bonfire" and it was, in fact, a small fire with containment. Even though the city lifted fire restrictions for now, it's best to be careful. These two numbskulls are dumb enough to display knives and axes on their walls, so I don't see them as being especially fire-knowledgeable.

    Well, this is the woman who put tahini in a smoothie.............
  3. Whew! I was worried she'd come to Hoover Dam barely clothed, allow the sun to fry her and wind up passing out. Or, worse, that she'd try to get a topless photo of herself up there or on the bypass bridge (luckily they catch everything hinky like that). It is actually Fainting Season at the dam. People drop like flies, every day, several times a day after only being out of their vehicles for maybe 30 minutes. I can just picture Whitney falling out wearing only a sport bra (and the poor medics who have to tend to her because she couldn't be bothered to dress properly). Glad she is long gone. We don't need that kind of trouble (or screeching).

    How much avocado is on that damn toast? A whole one? That fancy lunch has to be closing in on 400 calories.
  5. She's in Tahoe? Oh Lord don't let her come down into southern NV or AZ.
  6. I'm not a doctor, but I did have them so bad I had to have my right ovary removed. It kept making cysts, I kept going to the ER from rupturing cysts. Finally enough was enough and it had to go. Before that, I was given lots of options for treatments that did not work for me. Different hormones, naproxen (which was new at the time). As a distance athlete, it was interfering with a lot of my training. I was always careful with my diet and weight (too careful, I was anorexic) so the weight gain issue did not affect me until recently. I've had to really restrict my calories lately even though my running has not changed much. If there's anything I could tell Whitney, I'd tell her that it gets harder as you get older. If she thinks it's hard now, she's in for a real disappointment as she ages. It's her choice to keep using PCOS as an excuse but if she remains that obese, she will be chasing a problem she won't be able to catch later on. I still feel she's hiding a food addiction with PCOS as her crutch.
  7. I'm so sick of hearing her excuses because I struggle with the same thing. She uses PCOS as "the" excuse to camouflage her food addiction. We all know Whitney wants that big cookie, so she needs a medical reason to fall back on (because it can't be the 700 calorie cookie or 500 calorie froo-froo coffee). Seems like Will is the only person to have called her out and not get raked over the coals in the process--everyone else is so damn delicate with her. Remember this? So sick of her whiny excuses. She is a lousy example for women with PCOS. Her message is, "there's nothing you can do about it" and that's bullshit.

    What's telling on her hashtags is "#getawayhouse". Then she bitches when people talk about whether or not she's leaving--the jackass kinda puts it out there.
  9. Huh? The only way she could make something die is if she got it to hold still long enough to sit on it (or shot it from a distance). Pretty sure she's not light on her feet for this sort of thing (been there, done this). Don't know how good she is in a ground fight, but that might be her only advantage. I'd hate to be wrapped up in that.

    Just, wow. I know these types. Video-game playing pudballs with collections of "weapons" on the walls. In the right hands, even chintzy props can be extremely dangerous (I can't tell from their blurry photo whether or not their stuff is decent), but I doubt these two have done anything with these items except hang them on the walls. They're just asking to have those things used against them or stolen (while they're hiding in the closet peeing themselves on with 911). The immaturity is profound. Side note: I, too, have a collection of axes and knives and they are not hung on the wall. They are stashed away in backpacks, camelbaks, body armor and bags in case I ever need one.

    "In the heat"? In the heat. Flagstaff is in the 80s this time of year. Who's she trying to fool? Also I'm with you guys, there's no way she's eating all that and if she does, it's drowning in her favorite dressing.
  12. Sorry to hijack the running in the heat question, but I do. Some days I train for that specifically. In AZ sometimes you don't get a choice--I've run summer races in up to 114 degrees. Anyway, I'm covered head to toe. I use my old wildland fire shirt (it breathes SO well) and white reflective tights. Any exposed skin in AZ gets fried. Here, when you sweat, it doesn't even get the chance to cool your body like it's supposed to. Your skin just gets sizzling hot (hence the need to be covered up). I always have a camelbak. It takes me about 30 minutes of prep just to get out the door for a full-sun heat run and, just in case, I make sure Mr. Turtle is around because you never know. Even the well-trained can develop heat issues and going it completely alone/independent without a backup plan isn't a good idea. Unfortunately my trail shoes are black so my feet fry. I've thought of trying to cover them with a light mesh but can't come up with anything simple/easy to implement.
  13. Mariah thought everyone was "lying" about the runner's high? Like, we're all trying to pull one over on people by lying about running? Millions of us were lying? IDIOT. Normally I welcome everyone into the running world, but I feel like this twit is going to find a way to ruin it simply by being herself.

    Cute picture, cute dress. That one's not bad.

    Apostrophe abuse! It's not that hard--conjunctions and possessives. It's so common you can see this mistake on menus and even storefront signage. People paid for that mistake. Of course anyone pointing it out is the bad guy, not the twit who doesn't know BASIC, grade school taught rules.
