You are almost to work and you realize in the hurry to leave the house you forgot to grab running clothes. Realizing the clothes you wore the night before are still in your gym back in the trunk, you set them out to air dry, and even though they are still damp with your funk from the night before, you put them on and do 8 miles in 85-degree heat.
Yep, I had to do that yesterday. There were a ton of people on the path, but I can't figure out why no one would come near me!
might have alrady been mentioned, but...
You can identify all of your friends from a distance, covered in mud, but the way they run, and you know who is coming up behind you by the sound of their breathing.
When you meet people you don't know, they say, "haven't i seen you running?"
You have runners on the pictures on your calender
You think your soncks are "white." Everyone else says, "Oh, you mean the brown socks."
every one on the team has their own personal spots where they stop to take a piss or a krap along every trail and they never fail to use them.
when ever you run in a group it never fails that one person pushes the pace and then the next person goes at an even faster pace til at the end of a recovery run the whole team is in a dead sprint for the last mile or so
