Prediction #1: Ben trains hard for a few weeks and then gives up and we never hear about this june marathon again.
Marathon training starts Monday.
Click to make big, save to desktop and join me in 19 weeks of fun for a June 21 or June 22 marathon.
Print that biatch and hang it on your refrigerator.
Those are miles, by the way, for the metric folk.
Prediction #2: Ben trains hard for a few weeks, gives up, then half heartedly recommits and runs the marathon anyway even though he isn’t prepared. It will take him over 6 hours to finish but he will congratulate himself for having the courage or whatever to finish it and his followers will piss themselves with adulation.
Prediction #3: Ben hurts himself in training which gives himself an excuse to bow out gallantly. He then undoes any hard work put in by eating crap and gaining 100 lbs.
Prediction #4: Ben actually MTFU and sticks to training, drops some lbs. and gives the marathon a serious go. Then gains 100 lbs afterwards.
Any of y’all the betting type?
I love that people still leave comments on Ben’s do life facebook page like 1. they actually expect him to respond, and 2, they obviously haven’t done their homework and realized he’s right back to square 1.
Everybody just wants to promote their dumb shit anyway.
And someone is actually offering him a free payed trip to Oz. If he doesn’t take that imma smack a bitch.
Who knew that living on peanut butter frozen yogurt and not working out would cause one to gain weight?
Luckily, settling into a routine, eating mindfully and starting back on running would causes weight loss.
It’s been a good start to the year.
Let’s all give Ben Davis a big hand, folks. 14.4 pounds in half a month. Well done my good man. Good show.
Oh wait, but you were at 320.2 when you recommitted THREE AND A HALF MONTHS ago.
Follow your dreams, tiger, you’re goin’ places.
I love the tumblr community, but whenever a blog follows me whose main point is to blog about and put down another blog just pisses me off.
Are you really so passionate about hating someone that you dedicate a whole blog to them? Grow up and check your priorities.
My darling Bethany, this blog wouldn’t exist if Ben wasn’t such a tool in the first place. If he didn’t constantly recommit only to give up for several months again. If he wasn’t constantly trying to take advantage of his followers by setting up scams oh I mean weight loss challenges. If he actually followed through on half the shite he said was going to do (100 mile race, anyone?) If he actually practiced what he preached. If he hadn’t been handed a golden opporunity of a book deal/tv appearances/trips around the country for motivational speaking, opportunities that most of us would kill for but he essentially shits all over them because he got a case of the sads and just got too lazy to keep putting in the hard work.
I would love it if Ben could regain a tenth of the spark and determination that originally inspired me years ago. But in the meantime I can’t help but think of him as a tool, and now every brainless follower of his who insists on defending him is a tool as well. Like I’ve said before, it’s just not healthy for so many people to act like he craps rainbows all day. He needs some people to call him on his shit and I guess I’ve taken up the challenge.
I’m sure Ben is a nice guy, but let’s face it, the guy CANNOT keep his shit together and I don’t understand what is so speacial about him anymore.
Ugh, rant over.
He didn’t weigh in for the month of November.
In fact, the only exercise he seemed to do last month was some yoga, one beach run, and of course a few rounds of golf.
He only posts when things are going well. If things aren’t going well, he avoids it for months before doing a big acknowledgement/recommitment.
His recommitment didn’t even last two months this time. What a pathetic joke.
Look, I’m all for Ben getting healthy, but maybe try doing it in private next time. The whole public accountability doesn’t seem to be working anymore.
My god, if you are a fan of his, it must be exhausting.
Ben used to be a paid motivational speaker, book author, and CEO of his own incorporated company.
Then he got a job at some kind of advertising firm.
Then left that for a similar job somewhere else.
Now he works as a host at a hotel.
I wonder how that feels to have squandered that kind of opportunity.
