If you're an athlete at your school, you know that it is one of the most valuable experiences you've had in your life. However, you also know that the athletic life, while full of excitement, can also have some not-so-fun aspects that may impede a bit on your enjoyment. Here are five problems only athletic girls will understand.

1. You Don't Know What Sleep Is

2. You Look Like a Crazy Bag Lady

3. You're Not Taken as Seriously as the Male Athletes at Your School

You're also bombarded with ignorant comments like, "your practices aren't as rigorous as ours" from that arrogant quarterback on your football team. The school is full of sexist remarks, but you don't let them discourage you from keeping your head high and in the game.

4. The Arrival of Your Period Feels Like the Beginning of the Apocalypse

5. FOMO Because of Games or Practice Is Real

While your friends are having a girls-day-out full of spa treatments, mani/pedis and shopping, you're preparing for the upcoming championships. While it's sometimes disheartening, you don't complain because you know in the end it will all be worth it.
