You might be a runner if…

You might be a runner if… you’re driving down a road and starting doing the mileage in your head for the distance from your house down this very road and off that next side street….(this also applies to “you might be in marathon training if… πŸ˜‰

you might be a runner if… new running clothes make you way way too happy. And you do happy dances/jumps like this:
you might be a runner if You get excited on vacation to wake up early and run in a new spot. Bonus excitement points if it’s along a lake, a moutain side trail, or chock full of spectacular views.
You may be a runner if… you 100% know that THIS is the happiest place on Earth (sorry Disney..,you’re out)
You may be a runner if… you understand this little quote:

You may be a runner if… a track workout makes you really excited..and you had so much fun with it that you can’t WAIT to go back and do it again..

Runners: How do YOU know you’re a runner?

  2. I’m with you on everything but music … but I have been told (even by other distance runners) that I am weird as a ‘no music ever’ runner. Oh well πŸ™‚

    Also, you know you’re a (male) runner if every trip to the store includes a box of band-aids … πŸ™‚

  3. You might be a runner (marathon training) if you have every public restroom spot on your runs memorized. πŸ˜‰ or you cancel a dentist appointment because you just had to get that tempo run in on your only day off work lol. Thanks for sharing the checklist! Def a good save for race day.

  4. I agree with all of the above! Except for the Dick’s part, but that’s just because I think Charm City Run is the happiest place on earth. Seriously I get way too excited about the running store. Love that race check list too! (AND AWESOME SPLITS!)

    • Thanks love!! I’ve never heard of Charm City Run-but I bet it’s great bc what running store isnt chock of wonderful, expensive, brightly colored smile-inducing running items? Lol! I wish I could go right now!!!

  5. I love this!
    I’d also like to add: you know you’re a runner when you get crazy tan lines – especially the ones from wearing your Garmin!

  6. Love this post!! I checked off all those “ifs” haha!
    New running clothes are seriously way better than any other purchase. Just got some new ones in the mail and I am SO excited to run this weekend! πŸ™‚

  7. Hahaha love it!!! I know I’m a runner because 90% of my weekly laundry is running gear … and because I can go through an entire drawer full of undergarments in less than a week just to name a couple things oh!!! Wait there is one more you know your a runner when you actually consider it an honor to lose a toenail

  8. Ha! Although I would swap out the pic under “happiest place on earth” for one of a race finishing chute πŸ™‚

  9. Oh I can totally relate to all of these! Especially the music one, approximating distances while driving (I do this a lot on vacations) and being excited to run on vacation! I get kind of terrified for track workouts but i guess there’s some excitement in there. Also if you’re excited to see what colors your shoes model will come in with the next version πŸ™‚

  10. You know you’re a runner if…you have to do laundry solely because you’re out of sports bras, not shirts or pants or regular people clothes.
    You know you’re a runner if…you buy new sports bras just to avoid doing laundry πŸ™‚
