You Know Your A Runner When….Part 3

Runners share a special bond and sometimes have traits, habits, or idiosyncrasies that only other runners understands.  You may be able to relate to or appreciate some of these descriptions.

  • you have  more dirty cloths than a newborn
  • you wear your running cloths for pajamas as to not waste any time getting out the door in the morning
  • you always wear running shoes, your old running shoes are now walking  shoes.
  • you have a pair of running shoes for the muddy days, two pairs of training shoes you alternate every other day and you know the exact mileage of them all
  • you have more race tee shirts than all the cloths the rest of your family has put together
  • you can start anywhere in your home town and be able to tell others where the next mile is
  • even your church shoes have something to do with Nike, Asics, New Balance
  • you give directions to someone and tell them it’s just a 5k up the road
  • your laundry area is always littered with running stuff you’re drying out because you never put it in the drier
  • you can say things like “I’m just running an easy 6 today” and you really mean it

Runners are a special group of people.  Individuals that don’t run think we are crazy.
