Olympic Runner Lolo Jones Is Saving Herself for Marriage
Olympics-bound runner Lori ‘Lolo’ Jones, 29, is fast on the track, but there’s one thing she’s not rushing into: sex.
Jones, who will compete in London in the track and field categories this summer, recently shared on Twitter that she’s a virgin.
She explains on the HBO show ‘Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel’ that:
“It’s something, a gift I want to give my husband…This journey has been hard. If there’s virgins out there, I’m going to let them know: It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life — harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college, has been to stay a virgin before marriage.”
Let us know: What do you think of Lolo’s conscious choice to stay a virgin until marriage? Did you save yourself for your spouse — and was it a struggle?
