I’m surprised I didn’t let another 70 years pass between one post and the other, congratulations to me.
Today I come to talk about fame (or at least that’s my intention, we’ll see how the post ends) and how to deal with it.
Being a racewalker comes with great responsibility, it doesn’t matter how big or small the place you live is, you’ll always end up getting recognized.
But mind you, it isn’t the kind of fame some people seek, it isn’t Madonna’s or Oprah’s kinda fame, it’s more like the local drunk or flasher fame.
Basically people around town know me as “the guy who walks/run weird”, but that’s about it.
I think I already told you about the amount to sex offers I get while passing by construction sites.
I know what’s like to be catcalled, I’d say I feel naked but then, summer comes I’m usually half naked most of the time, but even then I’m not asking for it (BTW never google “half naked gif” at work, but do!).
I also get the random cars honking, people waving and the odd runner asking me how fast I’m going.
The worst is at the supermarket, people look at you and make you wonder whether or not you know them, they nod and I’m left wondering all day who that person was and if the nod/wave was at me.
Sometimes I get stopped and asked “Are you the racewalker?”, when it happens I panic, because I’m sure my life will end the way John Lennon’s life ended.
You may think I’m being paranoid but I was already threaten once and another time someone was lurking around my building, but that falls into the stalking category.
Now in times of COVID I thought I’d be safe and I could live anonymously, but I was dead ass wrong, today someone approached and asked me if I was the racewalker, even tho I was wearing a mask and a hoodie. Maybe my legs and colorful shoes give me away.
Fame has its downside (mine has no pros lol), I can’t just stop and pee anywhere cuz I’m easily spotted (never google “public peeing gif” at work, but do!) and I don’t wanna end up on YouTube without monetizing of course .
So if you have seen a video of me, report it, I’m not making money for of it and I is poor.
Tell me, other than me, who’s the most famous person you’ve met?
Are you the owner of a sex tape with someone famous just waiting a bit to get rich or be the next Kardashian?
