In the summer time I tie the TP to my shoe lace, so it won't get soaked by my sweat.
This is a great thread, I can relate to so many. Especially the bathroom one's. Around here it's known by my name, the "Chris Stewart disease". I've heard people I don't know joke about it in the bathrooms before races. Is this something to be proud of?
Now where did I put that TP?
-whenever you're going on any sort of trip, you pack running clothes first, to make sure you'll have enough room for all of them
-you've ever been dropped off 15 miles from your house to get a more interesting long run in
-people ask you how many miles you run in a day, and you launch into a 15 minute explanation about your weekly long runs, easy runs, and workouts
-your easy days are longer than the "long runs" of recreational joggers "training" for their first marathon
-when dating someone, you consider if you could breed fast kids
-but at the same time, if you're female, you can't bear to think of having your training interrupted by pregnancy
-when you have to count out more than $.60 in change, you get really confused, since you don't normally deal with numbers that high
-you think nothing of paying $20 for a road race, but get irritated when putting the same amount of gas into your car
-your nagging aches and pains render you unable to walk correctly after runs, but taking some time off never actually occurs to you
wow i'm not that slow i've never run a 2 mile in over 1350; for the new sat maybe you better go with a 5k time instead

You're 10 days over you due date but you still go out there for one last workout before the baby comes. Then after a slow mile and a half,come home, go to the bathroom thinkng you have to go but realize it is the baby. So you squat down, catch your own baby, and look at your running watch to see the time baby number 4 entered the world.
the most important pieces of baby equipment you own are your single and double baby joggers.
you hear your kids proudly tell their friends that their Mom is the fastest runner in town and that she can beat anyone's Mom or Dad in a race.
while watching your own kids run around playing tag, you analize their running form and then realize that if you have just one more kid, you can form your own scoring cross country team.
This is one of the truest statements that I've ever read. I lose toenails, shit in the woods, and at 5'8" 140, I want to lose a 5 or 6 pounds to get down to a better racing weight.
...you contribute to the rampant negativity on this god-awful board. I don't think any other group of people could form a forum where people are this shitty to each other and just about everyone else in the world whose name happens to come up.
ps. i wasn't talking about you CTstrider...just making a general comment about the board.
And the memory makes your legs start twitching.
--A friend quotes a sentence from Once a Runner, you finish the chapter from memory.
--You don't realize until the end of the season that you'd worn the same warm-up pants and sweatshirt to Spanish class every day because it's right before practice.
--You've ever shown up for a morning class with a banana instead of pens and paper because it would have been too much work to go back to your room and shower, change, get your books after practice and breakfast.
--You've ever run 6 miles around a 300-meter parking lot.
you've actually adapted to the people who think 5 minutes in the mile is super fast, and you now pretend that it is just to silence the conversation...
while driving in the car with your girlfriend, she asks you "what you're laughing at." you tell her nothing, but in reality your laughing at the house you just passed because you shit on it's porch a day ago...
you might be a runner if at work and school people say "i saw you out running"
-your team's idea of a good time is running through the mall and baiting mall security into chasing you
-the phrase "gallowalk" means something to you, and it pisses you off
-you can name an Ethiopian other than Starvin' Marvin
-you know why Nike named shoes Eldoret and Lanang
-you feel naked when you don't have your watch, but shoes and a pair of running shorts is perfectly comfortable
|pre look alike|
...you have blisters on your toes bigger than your toes
...your body is 85% gatorade instead of water
...you make jokes about the football team while they're making jokes about you
...you have ever gotten frostbite on your penis from running in shorts in the winter(yes it happened and hurt like a mother)
...you know the coldest temp you've ran in and you try to beat it!
...You can't get a date
...You eat like a pig
...All you can think about during math is the splits your going to do in this afternoon's race
...That 'okay girl' becomes very attractive after she tells you her stunning PR's
...You use the excuse all the time of, I have to run
...You have pretty much no social life
