You know you are a runner when...

Recommended Posts

You know you are a runner when you have alot of safety pins, and you didn't buy them.

Not really true. Its only true for people who signed up for a lot of races. You dun need to sign up for races to be a runner. So to me this is not completely true.

This one from SCMS is more accurate.

Isn't that what's some of the contributions here is about joining races too, e.g. collection of medals, google your name and race result is all you find, CV full of race certificate participation

When out for shopping with family, you will only go into sports shop while your wife will go into every shop.

Here's some more.

You know you are a runner...

1. when you wonder why Sports section in ST always have so many news on soccer and no news on marathon or ultra marathon.

2. when you treasure your bibs more than your education certificates.

3. when you wish you can wear running shoes to office.

4. when you have more running shoes than your wife's entire shoes collection. (no offence to the ladies)

5. when http:\\www.sgrunners.com is one of your frequent visit website.

6. when you associate ECP with running instead of driving.

7. when you wish you can stay in Kenya or Ethiopia for a while.

8. when the Dr says you need treatment for some non-running related problems, the first question you ask is "can I still go running?"

Wow, these are great... some of them are pretty true :P

Some comments from me, though.

No 1 - Haha, can I say that I actually love reading the soccer news though?

No 4 - Err, actually this one not true what. I can count my pairs of running shoes with a single hand.

My contribution......

You know you're a runner when:

1. You know thighs as quadriceps, buttocks as glutes, soles as plantar fasciitis.

2. You are in the car/bus but your eyes pick out and follow runners along the roads, analyzing their gaits and trying to make out what shoes they have on.

This one is indeed really original statement for "you know you are a runner",haha.

Come to think of it, some GPS watches are really stylish in design and can even be worn casually =D
