You know you're a runner when...
Five miles is an "easy run."
Cross Country season is the best part of your year.
You have a hard time waking up early for a regular school day, but you get up at the crack of dawn to run just to stay in shape for next year.
Your shoes are full of holes and dirt, and the best thing in the world is getting a new pair.
Your teammates are some of your best buddies. ♥
You know the feeling of utter pain, but you also know that the most satisfying feeling in the world is finishing a race.
You never take being able to breath normally for granted again.
Walking isn't exercise anymore.
You look at the running clothes first in any store.
The words you dread most coming from your coach at practice are "run 99%."(In other words, "kill yourself for an hour.")
Your toenails are forever shot, and your feet are hideously covered with blisters and calluses.
Sore muscles and sweaty hair are just part of daily life.
You feel gross if you miss a daily run.
You make up ryhmes to keep yourself from quitting.
There are such things as 'death runs.'
You know who is a runner are when you see them--whether you're in the grocery store or in church.
I ♥ running. Any fellow sufferers? ;) Please be praying for me and my team today, as we run a team race. I am doing a 7 1/2 mile leg, and I want to do my best. Thank you, friends!
