*Note: If you enjoy running, you are a runner*
…you see a road/trail/path/highway/sidewalk and think “this would be an awesome place for a run!”
…you don’t hesitate to spend money on running shoes or clothes. “Regular” clothes? Those purchases are RARE.
…you set an alarm on Saturday mornings. It doesn’t matter what time it is…if you set an alarm to workout on the weekend you are part of a special breed.
…you don’t “find time” to run, you make time.
…you’ve taken an awkward running selfie, but…
…you don’t feel the need to tell the world (aka post on social media) every time you run.
…you consider running to be “therapy,” but…
…you’ve learned that running does not replace actual therapy.
…you have to explain to the person at the nail salon why your feet look the way they do.
…you consider running the best form of sightseeing.
…you think everyone should be injured when you’re injured. If you don’t get to run, no one else should be allowed to either.
…you do your best thinking while running, but don’t always remember those brilliant ideas post-run. Just me??? I need to leave voice memos…
…you think about food
before, during and after a run all day.
…you realize that time OFF from running doesn’t take away your runner “title.”
You know you’re a runner when you realize that running is a gift.
A gift you should never take for granted.
