“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20.

You know youre a runner when...

Found these "you know you're a runner when" facts on another blog (therunnergirl.me ) and just like that newer runner on that blog I can already associate with a few of them. Some not as much. I wanted to share them just for laughs. I'm setting in the doctors office waiting to have sore throat and ears seen about.

your day isn't complete until you've put your run in.

your daily run is like therapy, or an anti-depressant.

your 'To Do' list reads: Go Run. Everything Else.

you get upset about injuries because they keep you from running, not because you have actually damaged your body.

while driving places, you're constantly evaluating the road for it's "running route potential".

you run.....for fun.

you don't like having to take a "rest day".

you consider getting a PR almost as great as winning the race.

you have a list of all the races you plan to run for the next 12 months.

you feel an instant kinship to any other runner you pass by on the street.

whether a 5K runner or a marathon runner, you understand "the runner's high".

the high you feel after a race outweighs the anxiety you feel before it.

a nice walk doesn't really feel much like exercise.

your iPod has a "running" playlist.

your non-running friends consider every race you run a "marathon".

a good day is when you put more miles on your running shoes than your car tires.

you only wear your running shoes for running.

you have more ice packs in your freezer than frozen dinners.

you plan your vacations around races.

you have a subscription to Runner's World magazine.

you know what a GU packet is and you've tried every flavor and have a favorite.

you're around friends and family, the only thing you talk about is running.

you're not a morning person but you still find yourself up at 6:00 am on a Saturday.

you're a guy and you say things like "long and hard" to your female friends and it is not a sexual innuendo.

you double knot all your shoes out of habit.

you try to convince people to run a 5k because it's "only" 3 miles.

you spend $100 for a pair of shoes and think you're getting a good deal.

you wear your running shorts underneath your work clothes so that you can quickly get running after work.

your first thought when you look at the weekly weather forecast is, "When can I fit in my runs?

you have more running clothes than regular clothes in your laundry pile.

you no longer make fun of fanny packs because your running belt looks very similar to one.

you're not embarrassed to wear spandex.

the salespeople at your local running shop know you by name.

at least one of your web site usernames or email addresses has the word "run" or "runner" in it.

you know where exactly one mile from your front door is in any direction. (so true and funny - findtheskinny)

your Facebook or Twitter updates frequently involve running.

you get jealous when you're driving in your car and pass runners.

you spend more money on running clothes than work or casual clothes.

Comment and tell me which ones apply to you.
