Being skinny doesn't mean that you're a picture of health and automatically fit as hell. And being fat doesn't equal being totally unhealthy and unfit.

Speaking as a fellow thin person, that has nothing to do with how fit you are. If you wanna run faster, you still have to train your body to do so. I’ve never been particularly athletic, but I’m fine with that. Don’t knock on other people because they’re bigger than you - they’re obviously putting in more work than you.

To be fair, the obese people have more mass so that means they have more momentum.

But they have to overcome more inertia at a standstill first. Balanced, as all things should be.

Thicker than average, no it doesn’t mean they’re unfit or unhealthy. Blatantly fat, yeah it does.

Wrong, there are many "morbidly obese" people who are otherwise the picture of health. If the absolute only thing wrong with you is that you have more body fat than someone else, that doesn't make you unhealthy. The things that make being overweight unhealthy, in the sense that people think of unhealthy as being, are the things that tend to tie into it such as High Cholesterol, high glucose, etc. It is, however, possible to be obese but have perfect cholesterol levels and such. Being thin doesn't automatically mean healthy, and being fat doesn't automatically mean unhealthy.

Take sumo wrestlers for example :P

I'm guessing the fatties celebrated their non-last-place finish with a pizza and rejoiced that they beat the skinny, slow kid.

Just cause you're skinny doesn't mean that you're fit.

I call that “skinny fat” because a person can look thin but they don’t have muscle tone it’s just fat; as opposed to a “fat” person who has muscle tone & a lot of fat

I call people who are very overweight "obese".

Running slower than everyone else is still better than lying on the couch. Well done!

Except it doesn’t sound like it was a choice since it was gym class. Sounds like this is a student and it was mandatory.

YDI for thinking skinny=fit/fat=unfit. Instead of sounding so petty, go ask one of the fast runners to work out together.

Skinny doesn’t equal fit. I’m guessing based on this statement you are naturally slender without working out which is fine but it doesn’t make you physically fit.
