You Know You’re a Runner When…

One of my favorite sites to get pulled into is  I end up spending hours on this site just looking at the different products and (my favorite) “ebibs”.  Here is a list I pulled together of some of my favorites.  Enjoy!

You know you’re a runner when…

  1. You stare at every runner on the road when you’re driving with jealousy & envy!!
  2. You get up earlier on Saturday’s than any other day of the week to get a nice long run in and actually look forward to doing so all week.ebib21
  3. You have more patience running over an hour than you do waiting in line at Walmart for 5 minutes.
  4. You finished 10 miles and you don’t brag to your friends because it’s not a big deal anymore…
  5. Your running friends are the only ones who understand your love of running and constant need to talk about it.
  6. Your immediate response to any conflict or problem life throws at you is: “I need to go for a run!”
  7. You know where exactly one mile from your front door is…in any direction.
  8. Your jewelry is kept in a box…but your medals are on full display on the mantle.
  9. You spend hours in the mall, find nothing to wear.  Spend 10 minutes in the sporting goods store, find hundreds of dollars of stuff you want to buy.
  10. You’ve tried to convince a friend to run a 5k with you because, “it’s ONLY 3.1 miles.”
  11. The thermometer says 45 degrees and you think Score! Optimal running weather!
  12. Your running clothes & shoes take up half of your suitcase on trips.
  13. You can say things like “I’m just running an easy 6 miler today” and you really mean it.
  14. You have more complicated spreadsheets for your training stats than you do for your investment portfolio.  (Stocks? What stocks?)ebib7
  15. You plan your schedule around races and not races around your schedule.  Priorities!
  16. You develop a new found love for portapotties.
  17. You run past the speed monitoring sign as fast as you can, hoping to register your speed on the screen.
  18. You are looking forward to a girls weekend that includes a half-marathon!
  19. You see a sign on the highway telling you how many miles an exit is and you think – “I could run that!”
  20. At least one of your web site usernames or email addresses as the words run, running or running in it!

I can obviously relate to that last one for sure, right!? 🙂
