For one of my clients, I follow #runnerprobs on Twitter and am entertained daily by the tweets I see. There are just some things that only runners will understand. Which of these can you relate to??

I bought running shoes online once, and it was not a good idea. They lasted about a month. I swear they were knock-off Mizunos or something…

Definitely getting into one!

Oh the tan lines…I get shorts and sock tans.

None are currently missing, but those that fell off last year grew back all weird. I always feel weird when I go get pedicures!

Or wear compression socks to work…or out with friends…or anywhere…

I think all runners can relate to port-a-potty problems while out for a run.

Who has a social life anymore when you’re half-marathon/marathon training?

Definitely been there, done that. This is the worst!

“So how far is a marathon again?”

And we have to end with this one…all runners can definitely relate!


I loved these so much, I think I’ll make a monthly series with my favorite #runnerprobs & #gymprobs ;)

Which one was your favorite? Leave a comment and tell me one of your runner probs!

  4. Love these! My biggest one is panties riding up while I run. I end up doing a funky jig trying to remove the wedgie without losing my step.

  5. I think when people ask how long a marathon is, or think that every distance is a marathon is such a #runnerprob
