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?



your coach never told you not to drink cokes?....personally, i never feel good after drinking them.

...running inside on a treadmill makes you claustrophobic.

...you read these posts to psych yourself up for a race.

...you've developed a sixth sense as to what cars are about to do.

...you never use your bathroom scale because your weight never changes.

...you've developed ways to steer any conversation over to running.

...you take energy gels to races *and* exams.

...your friends all use the metric system (at least for distance)

...when someone mentions "chip" you don't immediately think Lays or Doritoes.

...when someone says "waterfall" you don't immediately think of the one actually made of water.

...all of your spent shoes look as if someone took a belt sander to the soles.

...you estimate your food intake by how many miles it will take to run it off. "You eat a big breakfast this morning?" "Ah, only about four miles' worth." This has the added benefit of making people think your even more nuts than they thought.

...anytime you walk in a crown you revert to pack running mentality; weave...pass...draft...block...weave...pass again

You "accidentally" ran 20 because you had left your watch at home.


This thread was great! I can't believe I read it all. This shall hence forth be known as T3CND (The Thread That Can Not Die).

...you know why it's a bad idea to shave right before a run.

...you've felt the miles pressing down on you.

...you've developed a very zen attitude.

...you know nothing about President Obama's policies, only that he's half Kenyan, which automatically makes him your favorite president.

...you can't even float in salt water.

...at the pool people have come up to you and asked you if you were alright.

...you can wax eloquent about different categories of pain. Meanwhile, people are getting the very wrong idea. (right idea?)

...you've performed all sorts of dermatological surgery with a safety pin.

...going on a diet would probably kill you.

...you've used celestial navigation to help you get home from a night run.

...you ate so many carbs you finally started making your own bread and bagels to cut down cost. Tastes better too!

If you chose to do a 20 mile long run instead of a 3,000m race (I actually chose to do this for this weekend).

You go for a long, hard run, and when you get back, you're immediately bored and want to go run some more, but know you shouldn't.

...when you drive around you point out where you ran earlier that day

...you would never wash the "luck" out of your jersey/shoes

...you dread taking a post season break

...you get fat from taking a post season break

...you wish your coach didn't make you take a break

...you wear your spikes around school to break them in

...you walk in mcdonalds only to use the bathroom

...you feel smug while running by fast food places

...you're used to people saying "10 miles at once?!"

...a little part of you dies when you see water bottle fanny packs

...you've read this entire thread and still havn't started your homework

-you have different career ideas but would drop any of them on a dime if you could be a D-1 coach

your school uniforms violate the school dress code.

you can run twice a day but still feel impelled to park as close to the door as you can so you dont have to walk

you've ever run before school- in the winter

you run to and from track practice

GORP is a comodity in your house

...you've gone to a pool, but not to swim.

...you have the upper body of a twelve-year old.

...you've watched The Deer Hunter and thought, "Pshh, let's see them do and ultra."

...no fast food discount would ever be tempting enough.

...you've ever used running as an excuse to get out of something: "I'd like to do the dishes, but I need to train."

...you spend an hour or two picking out one pair of shoes and five minutes picking out another pair.

...talks about running always become proselytizing.

...you chuckle a little whenever the news reports on the "obesity epidemic."

...your favorite authors are Sillitoe and Parker, Jr.

...mall-walking is your idea of Hell. --Or does that belong to "You might have self-respect if..."?

...thinking of the amount of accidents you've avoided would give you a heart attack if you weren't so healthy.
