You know you're addicted to running if.......

You can't look at a clock without thinking of your last PR

Your spouse/friends fall asleep right in the middle of THE best running story EVER

You stop people in stores, malls, any public place and ask them where they got their cool sneakers

You belong to more than one running club

You get in a heated argument over why YOUR favorite brand of running shoe is THE best

You have an account with,, and many, many others

You have shortcut links to all of them on your desktop

You keep a running blog (haha)

You see the high school track team running down the street and you wanna jump out of your car and run with them

You see the track team and hope they've hydrated properly in this Florida heat

You have a list of people you'd just LOVE to run with someday

You buy your spouse a pair of Asics running shoes for Valentine's Day because you want his feet to feel good (and they have a red stripe on 'em, really cool)

The only kind of clothing you've bought for yourself in the last 3 months is work out/athletic wear

You can't remember the last time you wore sandals or went barefoot

You know what body glide is

You own a cool pair of Injinjys

You know what Injinjys are

You rate the weather by whether or not it's a good running day

Your jaccuzzi goes from being a fun place to hangout, to being part of pain therapy

Your family doesn't laugh anymore when you say you're going out for a run

You've been bitten on the behind by a dog while running and the first thought is "this better not interfere with my marathon training!"

You're still running after being bitten by a dog on the behind

You carry pepperspray on your runs in case another dog finds you looking delicious again

You think the t-shirt you saw that read "I run like a girl, try to keep up" is the cutest shirt ever

You see a sticker that says 26.2 and you feel emotional

You have spent at least a day after a marathon rolling around the house in your computer chair because it hurts to walk and all you can think of is....where's the next marathon?????

You know what R.I.C.E means (too well)

You write about the "other" effects of running on your blog (this means you, SHERRY...LOL)

You tell people to "run hard" even though you're not 100% sure what that means, but a runner you look up to says it, so you're copying them

You don't work weekends in case a race comes up

You know who Jeff Galloway is

You think of Kathrine Switzer as a hero

You think Deena Kastor is lucky because her husband is a massage therapist

Here are some....add to the list if you can.

Ahhh.... too funny AND too true! I nearly spit my coffee out when reading "bitten on the behind"!

What a way to start a Saturday! :o)

Forgot to ask... do you really think Injinji socks make much a of a noticable difference? I've been eyeballing them, but I have trouble grasping the idea/benefit behind toe socks. How do you feel they compare to regular socks?

Saw your link on the Roads Scholar and thought I would check your blog out.

The only other thing I would add is you meet some of the best people in the world running.

Great blog!
