|i run with scissors|
you find yourself writing out race/workout splits and your weekly milage in your notebook during class instead of listening to the professor lecture
...You know the difference between a runner and jogger... and you hate when the ignorant call what you do "jogging".
...You cry when you sprain your ankle on a run, not because it hurts but because it might interrupt your training schedule.
...you run on it anyhow.
...Living in London is not so bad because it's got great running weather.
...Your "jogging" friends are afraid to run with you... and you're secretly glad.
...your off week is when you go to basketball camp.
...you think 401k is a long race.
...you skip your family fishing vaction to Canada because you don't want it to interupt your training.
You keep running AFTER passing out from exhaustion, while still unconcious.
When people ask you why you didn't stop when you knew you were about to pass out, you say it never occured to you to stop.
you plan on going an easy short 10 miler, but feel so good you accidentally do 20 without realizing it.
You wake up after a night of hard drinking, with one hell of a hangover and the first thing that comes to mind is....I gotta get to the trails for my sunday morning run
you do "hurdle shots"....hurdle over someone into an immediate double shot (not to be done near the end of the night)
Your first thought about vacationing is "are their any good trails?"
...the only things that are affraid of you are birds and bunnies, and thats only because they dont hear you coming up behind them.
...you fall asleep earlier than your 2 year old cousin.
You believe that the stars of ALL other sports are dopers but the best runners are champions solely from hard work and motivation.
You also believe in Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and that both Elvis and Pre faked their deaths.
|Dark at night|
Best one in the whole list. I definately do this. So much so that it earned me a 1.5 my first semester in college.
