I think I could outrun any of my skinny coworkers.

Neither speed or duration would be the ultimate measure of fitness. Who is ready to do it all again, in the shortest time, is more important.

Except that you were born in the 90s?

I think it's more a case of the media brainwashing people into thinking skinny is the ideal. Try working in the real world, where coworkers don't spend their time engaged time in foot races, and you'll find that skinniness isn't a pre requisite for top physical performance.

How can you think you are healthy and chain smoke? That is an oxymoron. You may be healthy now but wait a few years and you will see.

30 cigarettes per day is far from chainsmoking.
