Turning Bi, exceptional list! I'm in the same runner-turned-reluctant-cyclist mode and can relate to just about all the items on your list.

you get sand kicked in your face every time you go to the beach

you can't get a date

you smell

you have no social skills

your only friends are other run-geeks

you have to hang out on a pathetic message board

you get sand kicked in your face every time you go to the beach

you ran a "4-something mile" in high school

you can't get a date

you smell

you think your obsessive-compulsiveness is normal

you have no social skills

you have no qualms about shitting your shorts in public

you either live with your parents or with five other losers

you can't afford health insurance and blame either "greedy corporations" or the federal government

your only friends are other runner-geeks or strangers on a message board

You know who you're chasing down on a training run from 300 meters back...by their gait.

.... You spend more time reading training diaries than magazines.

.... 90% of the sites you visit on the internet are about running.

.... You use the excuse "i've gotta go running" when you don't wanna go out with friends.

.... You have times and splits all over your bedroom walls.

You have recorded a marathon over your wedding video.
Your fridge contains two types of drinks: Beer and gatorade.
You buy a house based on potential running routes.
You've been tossed from an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet.


Love it!
..."Once a Runner" is required reading for any prospective bf/gf.
...you consider the person who gets up at 5:30 in the morning to drive with you to a race/meet to be "the one."
...you propose on/after a training run/race.
...you refuse to meet her parents except for on your day off.
...you plan your wedding/honeymoon around a big race.
...your family portrait is at a race.
...your idea of "quality time" is a cool-down jog together.

Very good stuff!

...you can divide any time in minutes and seconds by 3 3/4.
...by 7 1/2
...by 12 1/2

...You have a busy day so you cut class to fit in your run
...You'd rather be outside in a hail storm than inside on a treadmill.
