    You might be a runner…

    Let’s face it, we runners are a “strange breed”. Now keep in mind that when I use the word “strange”, I do so with the best of intentions…strange is good, so let’s just embrace our strangeness an move forward. We do things that on the outside appear to be “a little different”, or as my non-running friends are oh so quick to point out… “just plain crazy” !

    So, for no other reason to salute runners of all levels, and in the tradition of Grammy award winning comedian Jeff Foxworthy, here is my version of

    “ You might be a runner ”

    If you have ever driven 5 hours, for the privilege of running for 4 hours…

    If you pay more than $ 5.00 for a pair of socks…

    If you “love the sound of Cow Bell in the morning”…

    If you have found a way to take “Manscaping” to a whole new level…

    If you know what Body Glide is, and have applied it to parts of your body  too personal to mention in an iRun blog…

    If your idea of “PB” does not include jam…

    If you have ever gone up or down a flight of stairs backward out of necessity…

    If you are the owner of a “utility belt” but are not in the “crime fighting” business…

    If RICE is something you do, as well as something that makes a tasty side dish…

    If you have ever applied bandages to your nipples…

    If you have ever paid the price as a result of forgetting to apply bandages to your nipples…

    If you find “black and blue” toenails in any way sexy…

    If you are not prone to giggle when someone yells the word “FARTLEK”…

    If you have ever uttered the words “my new watch is GPS enabled”…

    If “tens and ones” means more to you than “change for a twenty”…

    If you have ever asked a salesperson “how well does this garment wick away moisture”…

    and finally…

    If you have ever proclaimed “ I am never running this distance ever again ” while in the middle of a subsequent race of the aforementioned distance…you just might be a runner.
