I always get a kick out of ads, especially the ads for personal matters! I thought it would be kind of fun to put my own spin on one: A RUNNERS Personal Ad! Just the thought of it made me laugh!!!
It should read like this:
–Runner seeking companionship and possibly a running -mate.
-Being a runner yourself is not necessary, but an understanding for the love
obsession of the sport is a ‘make it or break it’ deal.
-Must love looking at piles of sneakers. There is literally no way around this. If you hate looking at sneakers, stop reading this personal ad now. Seriously..must understand sneaker obsession…
-Must be able to tolerate long,boring (to you) talks about running. If you are ALSO a runner, you must be ready to lace up sneakers and head out daily.
-Must be supportive, encouraging, and understanding of your runners PR’s and dreams.
-you will have hours of free time to yourself throughout the week. (Should you also be a runner, you can fill that void of time by running with me.) You can also expect a guaranteed 2-3 hours of freedom on Saturdays as that is long run day. (I hope you have a hobby or two…)
-The love of TRAVELING isn’t necessary, but is encouraged in seeking out ideal mate. RUNcations are in the foreseeable future! Think of all the places you will get to see!! I will happily hobble around with you upon completion of whichever race I have just run to sightsee with you!! If you are a runner, think of all the races we could run together!! The possibilities are endless…
-a Gentle temper required. Sometimes, surplus money earmarked for something else will go towards a race entry fee. Whoops..#sorrybutimnotsorry . Please promise not to get TOO mad…
-Patience is a virtue. Sometimes I might cry after a bad race, terrible run, or sprained/torn/ruptured body part/ligament/muscle/tissue(etc, you get the point,don’t you??) Must be ready at all times to pick up the pieces when your runner is injured, or for some reason cannot run.(In the instance of an injury-you should probably just disregard all things I say…I could be quite testy..try not to take it personally..)
-Must be okay with seeing me in compression socks, having black toenails, and chafing in odd areas…#donthatetherunhatethechafe
RUNNERS..,Did I forget anything?? What would YOU add!!
