You Know You’re a Runner When
I’ve been playing around with this post for a while, coming up with things here and there that have happened to me that I think kinda sorta distinguish me as a runner. These are only a few; I know there are many more. But I find these particularly amusing and hopefully you do, too. So in my opinion, You Know You’re a Runner When…
…you get caught stretching in the office elevator…multiple times.
…you hear PR and automatically think “personal record,” not “public relations.”
…your favorite food group is carbohydrates.
…you get really irritated when people say half-marathons and marathons are the same thing.
…you don’t hit a new trail until you know if bathrooms are easily accessible.
…you have a line in your budget for “race entry fees and travel.”
…you believe waking up at 7am is sleeping in.
…you sigh because a friend scheduled her wedding for Friday, meaning you either have to behave at the wedding or you’re going to have a rough long run the next day.
…you see a Groupon for Garmin, and automatically get excited because you think it’s for a running watch. When you find out it’s actually for a car GPS, you immediately delete the email.
…you’re always hungry. And you love it.
…you’ve mastered the art of using a porta pottie as fast as humanly possible.
…your laundry pile has more workout clothes than regular ones.
…you have more fun shopping for workout clothes than normal ones.
…you wonder if your commute to work would be faster if you just ran it.
…you read this post to see if it applies to you, then realize everything I’ve said is normal.
