Running Rules of Thumb

I got these from one of my friends on Dailymile 

1. If you see a porta potty with no line, use it. Even if you don't need to. 

2. If you have to ask yourself, does this driver see me? The answer is no. 

3. If you have to ask yourself, are these shorts too short? The answer is yes.
4. 1 glazed doughnut = 2 miles 

5. You rarely regret the runs you do; you almost always regret the runs you skip. 

6. Not everyone who looks fast really is, and not everyone who looks slow really is. 

7. Nobody has ever watched Chariots of Fire from beginning to end. Not even the people who made it.
8. You can never have too many safety pins on your gym bag. 

9. Running any given route in the rain makes you feel 50 percent more hard-core than covering the same route on a sunny day. 

10. If you care even a little about being called a jogger versus a runner, you're a runner.


  1. Number 2 oddly reminds me of an incident of two young girls, at the start of a friendship, driving down benson road to go..somewhere ( probably to stalk Okeefe) and almost driving over two runners that the driver of the vehicle didnt see until one of the girls dove into the grass and the passenger of said vehicle was screaming.

  2. You are such a running maniac! Lol. I love it...keep running...according to number 9, hopefully in the rain. :) Maybe we can go running on Spring Break :)

  3. Crystal: That story of the two young girls sounds terrifying but I'm sure the passenger now has some crazy stories to tell from her crazy driver friend. I miss you!
    Michael: I lovvveee running in the rain. I feel like my brain pushes me even harder and I feel so badass, seriously. We have to exercise when you come to visit!
