you might be a runner if...
you ran 9 miles before prom and then wore your running shoes with your formal dress
you got bored during the prom so you did running drills in the hallway in that same dress and running shoes
your coaches have to force you not to run
you have scars all over your legs and you know which trails you were running when you got them
all week you look forward to running 10 miles
you have ever woken up at 2 am to run, just to know what it feels like
when teachers ask you to say something you like about yourself, you use the word masochistic
you do more pushups than the football players
after you have ran 6 miles, the football players challenge you to a mile race, and then they are mad when they are lapped by a girl
you feel like you are lazy if you only run once a day
you cheer when you find out you are doing hill repeats at cross country practice
you dream about running
you have contests with all the guys to see who has the most blisters on their feet
you scare doctors because your normal heart rate is so low
you might be a runner if...
"...people think it's a winter sport."
sorry to be stupid but I don't get this one, could someone explain it?
Long overdue...but my high school was lacrosse crazy. Between girls and boys we've won four state titles (I think) in one of the deeper lacrosse states in the country (New York). The JV lacrosse coach is the football coach, so if you want to play lacrosse you have to play football. Consequently, to stay in shape, we get 30 lacrosse players every winter for indoor track (some of whom play key roles on the 4x2 and 4x4 squads, but most of whom just dick around and take up hallway space).
um actually i think they\'re talking about xc skiing
when i signed up for cross country i thought it was skiing.
flagpolewilly has pissed you off
These are awesome. I can't wait to share them with my team!
You might be a runner if your dog's name is Lasse Viren :O)
Your 2 mile time is the same as your SAT score
Actually, I can break 16:00 pretty easily.
here's some for girls:
-you think your becoming fat when you can no longer fit into pants you wore in 7th grade
-you consider girls who where a bra with a b-cup to have very large boobs.
You've run in the airport while waiting for your flight
Way to be creative moron!
You could beat everyone at the mall at any distance... after a warm-up. However, when it's raining cats and dogs and everyone is sprinting to the car in the parking lot (ie. no warm-up), you get dusted by 300lb heavies.
When someone says, "Will you be able to help us (insert task here) on (insert date here) at (insert time here)." and your first thought to yourself is, "What time will I be running on this day and what kind of workout will it be." Then your answer to the party is dependent upon your running.
Also, when planning a vacation, the first thing you think about is when and where you will run.
you like running and do it quite frequently
you have the IMMENSE urge to punch your boss when she asks you how "track practice" is going after you've already told her at least 5 times already that it's cross country season and NOT track season, that's in the spring
DAMMIT I THAT!
...you know exactly where in the one health club in a 10 mile radius the 4 treadmills with a 15mph top speed are. and you can max them out during a workout on a particularly shitty day.
all your friends call you scrawny
you wear your cross trainers to parties
while at parties all you can think about is running
After a year of running 1 to 2 hours a day around the same neighborhood loop, the small children your neighbors have write the word "run" with sidewalk chalk all over your route.
PS: I'm not kidding. I loved it.
you know that your socks can be used as disposable resources in emergency situations.
...You stop measuring your runs with your car because gas prices are too high.
...you read every single post on this thread and nothing seems obscure or out of the norm.
