Dude, that's triathletes. They are egotistical a-holes that only talk about one thing; themselves. None, and I repeat no triathlete ever has been heard to utter the following: "so how was your race?"
not true.... I've run 2 Ironman triathlons and in both I've seen better sportsmanship than in any running race. In the first, I saw a group refuse to leave a member when he said for them to go on because he didn't think he was going to make it. They told him:"We've come this far together, we're going to finish together" In the second, I was tired and started walking. Many people asked if I was ok, and one guy offered me his enervit gel. After both races I was asked several times about my race, and I also asked many others how their races went.
...you've run a workout alone on the track while the varsity football team stood and watched.
it was pretty badass. it was snowing with 30 mph gust in the dark. for the last part of the workout i had no shirt either! ...i won the workout for the day, despite my teammates running it an hour before hand when it was 10 degrees warmer and with considerably less wind. Oh btw for the rest of the year the football team hasn't messed with a runner since.
...you ever sat in a chair with a cup of tea on the arm and realize that your pulse is causing ripples.
...you're favorite fable is the "Tortoise and the Hare". (Especially if you run distance)
...anytime you need to make a big decision, you go for a long run and mull it over.
...you never worry about getting mugged.
...dogs on your route are seen as incentives.
...you see a movie with really rough terrain and think "I want to run there".
...you can "read" the tread on another's shoes and tell what kind of runner they are.
...you have no qualms about correcting other people's forms.
...you have ever spent considerable time calculating the miles you've run in your entire life.
...you chuck your spent shoes up a tree along a course.
...you weren't alarmed when you lost feeling below your waist during a race.
...you argue about the pros/cons of i-running with other runners.
...you got your best time ever in a minimarathon and feel disappointed because *one* guy passed you in the last mile.
...it's getting tougher and tougher to get that same high from running.
...you've ever said "I'm gonna be sore tomorrow" with a feeling of happy anticipation.
...seeing someone else running when you're not makes you feel like a scumbag, even if you already ran that day.
...you've run with broken toes.
...you've seen running with the bulls and thought "What's the big deal?".
...your wardrobe is increasingly becoming just running clothes.
I'm slowly watching my casual, regular wadrobe decreasing in size and i'm finding myself always in running clothes and i just don't care !! :)
You think the biggest problem facing society today is chronic dehydration.
If it takes longer than 43 seconds to have a bowel movement, you worry for the rest of the day about your recent onset of "constipation."
|i remember that kid|
-if you've revived a dead thread on letsrun
-if you've ever kept a training log
-if you have more than 10 race t-shirts that you wear regularly
-if someone has to force you off the trails when your hurt
-if you've cried when the doctor told you that you had a stress fracture
-if you think that you are out of shape when you can't do 6 miles "easy"
-if you don't ever drink Coke (except after that big race)
-if you've had bad dreams about drinking a Coke and ruining your training
-when someone says "colorado" you think immediately of boulder, not denver
-"running with the buffaloes" sounds appealing to you, you have some questions for them
-anytime you have a multiple-choice question and one of the answers is "tim culpepper", its your instinct to choose him
Uhmm, I drink a can or two a day. I'm sure it's not super healthy and all, but how can coke really ruin your training?
