You know you're a runner when...

...you make time during a cross-country skiing vacation for a run. (Since it was unseasonably warm, with highs in the 50s, it really was perfect running weather.)

 

...you go for a long run the day after getting back from same skiing vacation.

    You know you're a runner when; You are constantly resetting the odometer on your car to measure distances near where you live as potential running courses. (Or am I alone on that?)

    You know you're a runner when...

    You're booking a hotel for business travel based on proximity to running paths/trails rather than the client's office. And you toss aside the "going out" clothes to squeeze one more set of running gear in your bag.

    You miss 4 months due to injury and you start back up.

    You can watch a live marathon on tv just like any other sports. (and wishing if you could run 4m/mile like those runners)

    You know you're a runner when...
    • You're driving on the freeway, see a particular off-ramp and immediately associate it with the location of a favorite race. Then a few miles later...another one. And then...another one...
    • At the mall, you head first to the running store, even if you don't need anything at all...you just want to see the latest gear. 
    • You check out race results for some races you haven't done...just to see where you MIGHT have placed in the pack.
    • You're on a business trip and weasel out of attending a breakfast meeting because your AM run is more important.

    You know you're a runner when...

    ...walking just seems so slow now that you'd rather run everywhere (and do)

    ...you're trying to guess the pace of runners as they pass you in your car

    ...you forget your sneakers but still do the run-- in work boots

    ...you hate taper weeks because you'd rather keep it going

    ...you start measuring your runs in hours
