If you've ever said you've seen enough of Towson-born Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps for one lifetime, I submit to you evidence that you may have spoken too soon. Phelps, the record-setting Olympic swimmer, is one of 22 athletes appearing nude in ESPN The Magazine's The Body Issue, which features photo spreads of the world's top athletes, well, out of uniform. Phelps will join tennis star Venus Williams, Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch (Beast Mode indeed), Texas first baseman Prince Fielder, Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka, and Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, and former Maryland soccer player and current United States national team defender Omar Gonzalez.

It has taken me almost 50 years to realize a very basic concept: I should be grateful for my body and not despise it. Yet there are times like the beginning of summer and swimsuit season where I struggle for rationality. My body has, after all, carried me around faithfully for almost half a century. It has fought off infections, borne me up through fatigue, stress and trials. It has brought four healthy boys into the world and nursed them with vital nutrition, and it has supported me as I faced the challenges of being a working mom. Like most women, I understand that hating my body isn't right.
