Things Only Runners Will Understand

I’ve written about #runnerprobs before, and wanted to follow up with some more running humor. Some of the tweets and memes I found seriously crack me up! All while I’m thinking, ” so true.” Here are a few things that hopefully put a smile on your face this morning… :)


Yup. Been there…still am there. 4 years after my first marathon and two of my toenails are still messed up!


This one actually made my laugh. As runners we’re always so hard on ourselves after a bad race…I know even when someone says no you did awesome! I’m like, ehhhhhh….


Story of my life every day.

Which one of these can you relate to? 

Fill in the blank: You know you’re a runner when _______________.

  3. Haha I love these and can relate to almost all of them (except for running in the snow…not in FL!). Whenever I get a pedicure I have to explain why my feet are so messed up.
