    The Gazelle and I were talking recently about cool blog posts.  And we came up with this. I am so excited to share this with you.

    I usually giggle when I listen to Dave Letterman’s Top Ten List.  So with a nod of thanks to Dave, our very own Top Ten List.

    You Know You Are a Runner When:

    11.  Ok so we came up with more than 10!  Here goes!

     

    11. If your long run is in -30 degree weather you must be a runner.  And a Canadian one at that!

    10.  If you get up at 4.30 a.m.  to run early and  beat the summer humidity,  you must be a Canadian runner.

    9.  If you go to physio or ART  to run in a 5, 10 half-marathon or full marathon you must be a runner.

    8.  If you  can use the term fartlek in any conversation properly, you must be a runner.

    7.  If you can drink water while you run, without choking, you must be a runner.  A far more talented one than me!

    6.  If your ankles are bloody or your toe nails are falling off, and you aren’t concerned, you must be a runner.

    5.  If you can describe a trail by the scenery and where the kilometre markers are, you must be a runner.

    4.  If you can wear spandex and not be in the least embarassed, you must be a runner.

    3.  If you have a Garmin, any watch, a waterbottle, and fuel belt, you must be a runner.

    2.  If you can strike up a conversation with anyone wearing great looking running shoes, you must be a runner.

    And finally …

    1.  If you have a pair of running shoes that cost the same amount as a weeks worth of groceries.  You must be a runner.

    I hope you got a giggle or more out of our list.  And if you have an addition, please feel free to send it along!

    A runner for almost two years, Terry recently had the mildly traumatic experience of trying to find a flattering pair of running pants (“Isn’t running about pushing personal boundaries and just getting out there and moving? Except when you don’t look in the least bit like Paula Radcliffe.”). But although she may have been a bit embarrassed by “helpful handsome guy” at the store, she keeps a great perspective through her running experiences. Pushing through a number of injuries early in her running career, she got right back to training for her next race. “The feeling of elation when I crossed the finish line is unimaginable,” says Terry. Sounds like she’s hooked for good!
