I like the concept but not sure I can narrow my choices to just 10. I'll monitor the thread and come up w/a good Best Of list soon. Keep'em coming!
When packing for a business trip the first things you pack is your running gear.
When packing for a trip you pack your running gear in a carry-on just in case your luggage gets lost you can still run.
If you have an airport layover you go for a run around the parking lot.
You think women look better in running shoes than heels.
When interviewing a job applicant you ask them their mile time.

You might be a runner when...
You've been running over 25 years
You threw away your running logs at 40,000 miles...
And that was 12 years ago.
And Forest Gump can't hold a candle to that
You go for a physical and the G.P. refers you to a cardiologist for an abnormal EKG
Then the cardiologist praises you for a resting pulse of 44 and BP 105/70
And you're age 43
But 11 miles a day is "maintenance running"
You know what Tarzan Jones, Clarence DeMar, Johnny Kelly and Amby Burfoot all have in common
And what physical condition you and DeMar were both born with (a heart murmur)...but that didn't stop you either
You know how Marty Liquori injured his ankle before the Olympic Trials 20
years ago (stepping in a sprinkler hole on a golf course)
Glenn Cunningham's story inspired you when you were in 5th grade
And it still does
And you own his book "Never Quit"
On training runs with your buddies, you can guess runner's full names just from their initials
Two miles is what you do to warm up...
And cool down...
Before and after running 10 miles...
On Saturday morning...
After which you gulp down Cytomax and Endurox.
You've met George Sheehan
Your favorite speed workout partner is the light rail train in downtown San Jose
Your neighbors have seen you doing strange excercises through your windows at night...
And in the morning...
Doing step-ups on a kitchen chair...
With your wife on your back...
Ignoring your 3 cats meowing all around you...
While on your home computer a 1964 Tokyo Olympic video is blaring "Look at Mills! Look at Mills!"
And that video still makes your hair stand up
Help!!, I'm turning into a Bi...cyclist.
Lately, after running for over thirty years including
High School, College, and too many marathons, I have been
spending more and more time on my bicycle. So, here we go.
You might be turning into a cyclist if:
...the bike is your favorite part of a biathlon
...your new shirts have zippers and back pockets
...your new shorts have bibs and padding
...you have funny Italian shoes that you can't walk or
...you don't go anywhere without your helmet
...you're more concerned with your bike's weight than your
...you've started to convert running miles into bike miles
...40 miles is a "short" work out
...you can cycle the length of New Jersey in one day
(High Point to Cape May)
..."Cross Country" means Pacific Coast to Atlantic Coast
in 23 days
...you have developed a very expensive titanium habit
...you can pee off of a moving bicycle
...you learned what "Road Rash" means the hard way
...you root for "Marty" who doesn't run the mile,
but does have an Olympic Gold Medal
...you traded in Runner's World for Velo News
...you switched from Gatorade to Cytomax
..."Breaking Away" and American Flyer" have replaced
"Chariots of Fire" and "Fire on the Track"
...you can pedal fast enough to "tease" dogs
...your "Spin Cylce" isn't a setting on the washing machine
...you know what RAGBRAI means
...you own more spandex than Tina Turner
...Shaved legs? Nah..I wouldn't be able to show up at
the Sunday Morning Runs with my local running club
You can't decide whether to have a pack of eggo waffles, a box of cereal, or a pound of pasta for lunch.
...and so you eat all 3
You look in your dryer after washing youre coolmax running gear and are giddy that there is no lint to clean up.
You would rather start foreplay with your g/f from running clothes rather than lingerie.
