Wow, I too do the shorts in the shower. I take them off before entering, then throw them in the far end of the shower, and let them soak/rinse, then wear them the next day.


Hairy, my legs show an artificially significant lack of hair, and I'm no tri-geek.

If you figure out a way to carry toilet paper on you run(I use the little pouch that is supposed to be for your keys!)

You sneak out at night and paint kilometre marks on the road on your favourite running routes

You think that a box of poptarts and a quart of milk is a complete meal!

You know where the cheapest place for PowerBars is in your city. (WAL MART!)

You look at Paul Tergat and Daniel Komen, both who look like famine victims, and you think "Damn! I wish that I could have a body like that!"

Your car smells similar to most locker rooms (and to you it "isn't that bad"). You keep a pair of trainers, a pair of trail shoes, a pair of spikes and a pair of racing flats in the car, because you never know when a good run or race may break out!

You wear running shorts as underwear b/c they just feel that good.
You go and play basketball and you're the guy running in circles pissing the crap out of all of the non runners just for the fun of it.
You can pee out of your shorts leg without stopping
You aim your snot rockets better than most people can aim their handguns

you know the taste of your own body's salt, and actually start thinking "hey, this isn't THAT bad."

You actually use the trip odometer on your car for something besides seeing what kind of gas mileage your car is getting.

you feel sorry for your runner friend who just bought a $500,000 house in a neighborhood where the roads have no shoulders.

you have replacement spikes in your glove compartment.

you see a skinny person on the street and immediately look at their shoes.

you meet an old teammate and can't remember their name but remember their mile time.

you see a pretty fast person running on the track and surreptitiously time them (but they always stop before you get a 400 split).

if your car breaks down you never even consider hitching or calling for a ride.

the key pocket in your running shorts always has a hardened lump of toilet paper in it after you do the wash.

When you lap the football team's star quarterback in the mile.

When you're a roadtrip and piss off your friends by focing them to stop so you can run for 50 minutes on the Interstate.

When you go home for the holidays and your parents utter those fatal words: "Son--you look good!" ...Then you have confirmation that you've gotten out of shape and you're f***ed--it's going to be a crappy track season.

You find out you know more about your body's physiiology than most non-sports doctors.

You wonder how much you could make if you could somehow manufacture, package and sell endorphines on the street.

When you plan out your vacations in consideration of accessible trails and possible races.

When you look around and realize how fat and cow-like most Americans really are.

A week later you remember your ex-GF or BF saying: "It's either ME or the running!" Buh-BYE!

When doing shots in the morning means wheatgrass.

When you are more entertained by Niketown than the Louvre.

Ever came to the end of a trail and had to ask a very confused person what town you were in.
Know at least three come backs to run Forrest run
Ever chased a snoty kid after you had already used up your come backs earlyer on the run.

The first thing you notice about someone is their calves.

Your heart makes the bed shake.

You time the splits of little old ladies jogging around the track "just in case".

You go backpacking for two weeks in the mountains and get out of shape.

You think all the world's problems would be solved if everyone would just get together and run their guts out.

You wake up your girlfriend in the middle of the night because your legs are twitching in sequence.

You've got a pile of Track & Field News on the back of the toilet.

-your running shoes have mud caked on them permanently.
-your shorts and shirts have more holes and dirt spots than the trails you run on.
-your running shirts have achieved that "very fine" feel as though they're made of tissue paper.
-you own no pairs of cotton socks
-your room has the aroma of blown rubber and sweat
-you inhale gatorade
-you can crap your own bodywieght
-you run through people's front yards and get pissed when they plant trees or some other damn thing

you have bald spots on the inside of your calves.

you have left for your run with a shirt and...um...lets just say you left it in the bushes

you have hoped a fence on a run to hide while you do your business

when you hear the word "hardcore" you think of josh spikers site hardcorerunning.com

~~lets also explore: You know you aren't a runner if...
you read runners world

when asked about letsrun, you say "no I already did 5 this morning"

you have never heard "you run 15 miles, i can't even drive that far"
