What once seemed weird to me is now becoming a pretty normal part of everyday life now that I’m a runner.
Do you know what I just noticed? I didn’t feel the need to put the word runner in quotation marks (“runner”) like I had something to apologize for. I Am A Runner.
Anyway, runners do weird things like:
Use the devil’s instrument – a foam roller – willingly.
Compare different types of odd food products to fuel during long runs.
Get up at unholy hours during the week and on the weekend to go on a run.
Happily compare injuries:
Wear strange socks in the evening:
Not to mention eating the same meal every evening before a long run (omelet and toast with honey) and the same meal every evening before a race (Subway sandwich).
It’s an exciting life we lead, huh?
