I'm not goin' give up
I'm not goin' stop
I'm goin' work harder
Maria spent many hours each week in the stinking sparring room in the old gym downtown. Not for her the shiny and glitzy gyms with their lycra clad members, jogging for fifteen minutes on a treadmill before stopping for carrot and mango frappe with an overpriced biscotti on the side. It was grimy, sure. You wouldn't want to lick any of the walls, but that was hardly why she was there. It was the place in the city to learn.
Far from the safest areas of town, the gym was a well kept urban secret. Old men gathered by the doors, sharing stories of past victories, grumbling about defeats, arguing the toss from morning till night. They kept the pretty boys away, letting only those there for the sport, and not the swagger, through the dented doors. Of course they had been skeptical at first, What was she doing there? Here to clean the place was she?
The first uppercut to the jaw of the one laughing loudest had put an end to that. Now they saw past the superficial, the cuteness of her clothing, however crazy it may be, to the talent. She was there to work, that was obvious to them all. Even with a babyblue and bowed legoesque villain on them, her clothes suited the task. She could move in them, could sweat, could train.
*Rubs hands with glee* It's hunting season!!! With Twisted in the bag - didya spot the survivor reference? - though you still have until the end of the month to finish - it's on to the next for me. Depraved Nation is at it again with The Autumn Effect hunt. It's gridwide, gifts for ladies and the gents, with around 100 stores - all gifts are 0L$. It began on September 15th and runs until 15th October.
You can find the SLurls, Hints, and Rules here...
Shown here is the female hunt prize from S u g a r . All MESH tracksuit. Its possible to wear the pieces separately, as alpha layers are included for both together, just top, or just pants. Included in the gift are sizes XXS, XS, S, M and L. The design on the back of the top is very cute, but not twee, as its not baby pink! The first and second pictures here are a nice example of how the mesh moves with the body, these weren't done with carefully arranged static poses, but snapshots mid motion using the animated gym equipment at this location. Nothing poking through, no alpha mishaps. I also really like the rolled up trouser leg, it takes this another step further from what you may expect in sweats.
