Last week heading out the door for my recovery run before I changed my mind, I failed to grab my Yurbuds which meant for the next 5 miles it was me and my own thoughts....YIKES! What's a good running blogger to do? Write a post of course!! I began to think of all the kooky things distance runners consider normal...that we may not even realize that 90% of the world's population thinks is absolutely insane!!
You know you're a distance runner when...
...you go to bed early on a Friday night while others are just leaving their house for dinner so that you can be up and fresh for a long run!
...you use words like fartlek, tempo, and repeats like they are every day common language that all your friends and family can understand!
...you consider 5 miles and easy run...shake out run...recovery run!
...you actually wake up the next morning after running double digits and well....run again!
...you travel/go to work with your own foam roller, stick, and ball!
...you cross a finish line....and begin to look for the next one!
...you drop over $100 dollars on sneakers in a heartbeat but would never spend that on a regular pair of shoes!
