Now that we are officially in race season I am bracing myself for all of the bizarre things people say to me about running.
Did you win?
LOL…lol lol lol lol. No, I didn’t win. I may have, however, come in the top half of age group/PR/not dide. I don’t give one single eff about other people while I am running. I only think about myself and what I am going to eat after the run that I didn’t win.
I got this gift from a sweet friend (Hi Mugs!) last week and it could not be more true!
I hate running.
Yup, I feel you. Sometimes I hate running too. It usually takes me between 2-3 miles to get in my groove which is hard because that means about 30 minutes of hating running (on bad days).
You paid money to run?
Ugh, yup. Life isn’t fair. But hey, look at this shiny medal/t-shirt/swag bag I got!
Wouldn’t you rather sleep in?
F*ck yes I would. But if I sleep in there is no chance I will get my run in. I know how my body functions best and early morning runs are always better for me than afternoon or evening runs.
Are you going to run a marathon?
Absofuckinglutly NOT*. At this point in my life, I do not want to run 26.2 miles in a single day. Marathons are great but they aren’t great for me. I do however love the half marathon distance so feel free to be half impressed by me.
*I reserve the right to change my mind about this and everything else in my life because its my life.
What’s the most bizarre thing someone has said to you about running/working out?
