Stereotypical Hilarity

This is amusingly true for me. 
I went to Italy for a one week college course.  Turns out blonde haired, blue eyed, 18 year old, pale skinned Americans are a delicacy.  I was actually chased across more than one piazza by Italian men screaming at me, "You have the most beautiful eyes."  Really buddy, your 100 feet away and moving at a pretty decent clip, how can you even see them? 
Oh, and the USA running for food.  Story of my life!  I LOVE food.  Food is there whenever I need it, doesn't call me at 3am, doesn't forget plans, always remembers my birthday; heck, food is pretty much the most stable long term relationship I have and it is one of mutual love and respect.  I love it, but respect that fact that if I don't do something about it, yikes!  It loves and respects my back fat which it creates.  Really, who accumulates fat there?  I am the only person I know with a reverse muffin top.  Truthfully. 

I refuse to give up the food I love, I'd be miserable and life for me would go way downhill.  It is not worth it.  If eating the foods that make me happy means I weigh 10 pounds more that I might otherwise than I will happily take those 10 pounds and throw them on.  However, I do want to be healthy so to compensate for the eating and to work on the whole cardiovascular/heart health, I run.  I run a lot.  Enough to make most average people think I am crazy.  So I guess this little info graphic is funnily true for me.  I do run for food and TO food also (6 mile run just to eat at the farmers' market last weekend), but at least I run. 
Wait if the only two countries I've ever been to, the USA and Italy are true….  Does that mean people in Japan really have to run from Godzilla?
