After a year of running 1 to 2 hours a day around the same neighborhood loop, the small children your neighbors have write the word "run" with sidewalk chalk all over your route.

PS: I'm not kidding. I loved it.

your friends all fell asleep during Chariots Of Fire, but you liked it so much you had to watch again and again
when you hear a song, you imagine how cool the music video would be if people were running in it
you can think of over 20 reasons
you have a shirt that says, "You Might be a Runner If..."on the front, and then a long list of reasons on the back
you enjoy watching track meets and marathons, and other running events on television
all of your dreams involve running
your goal is to run across the usa
your friends affectionately introduce you as "the psycho runner"you work in your dates around your running schedule
you would rather run than do most activities
you get tired walking for a couple minutes, but you can go for hours running
you have ever done mile repeats or a tempo run in a hurricane
your room is packed with nasty, ripped, worn out running shoes that have "sentimental value"

You might be a runner if...you write hate mail to idiot columnists like Phil Hersch of the Chicago Tribune and this new loser from Hammond, IN who claims that runners arent athletes.

you can remember all your rivals' PRs in every event but can't remember your mother's birthday.

you can say fartlek with a straight face.

if you've ever had someone actually ask you if you run across the freakin country.

you give up trying to explain that a cross country meet is not a track meet and vice versa(bad seplling)

...if you run on Christmas Day

...if you are ever bored while at an event and you start checking your resting heart rate.

...if you are in class or a meeting and think of "time remaining" until you get out in terms of "how far could I run in that given amount of time."

Somebody at work asks you what the world record is for the mile. You answer (correctly). They then ask if you've ever run one that fast (Answer: Nope, sorry, it was somebody else...)

IF you've ever written hate mail to a guy who claimed in an article that Ricky Williams was a better athlete than Lance Armstrong.
(wait, you don't need to be a runner, you just need to be alive.)

If you cut down on the food on Thanksgiving and Christmas because you know you have to run later and dont want a cramp.

You skip a social event so you won't be behind for your weekley mileage.

...you've run enough years to eat dinner then 30 minutes later be able to go for a run and not think twice about it

...you know all the places to take a piss or dump on all your normal runs

...you are proud when you take a dump in the woods

...you run more miles in a day then the hours you work or sleep

...when you go home early one night your friends ask in a saracastic tone if you have to run 10 miles tomorrow and you reply with 15
