You Know You’re a Runner When… (Random Quirks of a Runner)

Hello there!

Happy Friday! I’ve had a crazy busy week, but definitely good busy! So far so good at the new job – I even went running with a group from the office on Wednesday night! Running around Boston was a little different for me, but something I think I’m going to enjoy. 🙂

Speaking of running (as I so frequently do here)…

I realized the other day just how many weird and random thoughts I have related to running. Rather than being embarrassed, naturally I started filing these away for a post. 🙂 Yes, these quirks probably mean I’m officially a weirdo, but I figure there must be some other crazies out there too.

2. Going to bed the night before a race makes me feel 100% like a kid on Christmas Eve.

5. When I’m shopping, I am physically drawn towards the athletic apparel. I MUST look at it, even if I don’t *need* anything. And if something is on sale…?!

6. I get really excited when I see other cars with 26.2 or 13.1 stickers on them.

8. I spend my free time googling possible races to sign up for (even if I just ran one… that day.)

    I definitely do numbers 3, 4, 5, and 8 too 🙂 When I have an especially crappy commute, I like to think about how I could have run it faster (my commute is just shy of a half marathon in distance, and faster runners could definitely run it faster than it usually takes me!), even though that can be a depressing thought sometimes.

    Must have all the running clothes I can get!!! YES! Haha. And I love seeing other cars with the stickers on them even though I don’t have any of my own (my bf would prob disown me if I become one of THOSE people even though I have no problem with it lol).
    Another quirk of mine is that when I’m stuck in traffic, I can’t help but think how I could jump out of my car and run home faster if that was an option 😀
