My Friday looked like this….running (6 miles at a 7:57 pace), school with the kids, picking out a violin for my youngest daughter (OUCH! Musical instruments are expensive…I had no idea!!!!), Kohls for a new shower curtain and BJ’s (my husband said that I had to put a picture of this on my blog :)…in all fairness, they were $3 off per box….so this makes me a very thrifty wife not a crazy one :)!
I found this list of the 25 worst questions to ask a runner and it is just great!!!! It is a definite must read! I love it!!!!
Some of these questions can definitely be annoying…but some of them are just so funny…. and I have had a lot of them asked to me before!
Don’t you get tired :)….who doesn’t?! Everyday we choose how we are going to spend our energy…spend it well!
You run outside? You run in the cold…in the heat…in the rain…in the wind!………….YES…pretty much! I just had one of my friends ask me this question this week…”how do you still run in the rain?”
Do you really need another pair of running shoes…………….OF COURSE!!!!!! I promise I will get TONS of use out of them! I love running shoes!
Aren’t races expensive…….This one I actually used to say myself. I just did not get the concept of paying to do something I could do for free…until I ran a race!!! Can they get expensive…yes. I will argue that so can any hobby and this hobby happens to be great for your health! Everyone spends their money on something…you just need to prioritize and decide what is right for you.
You know someone does not know much about running when they ask you how far your marathon was…
A marathon is 26.2 miles!
And probably the most annoying questions would have to be about knees!
I am sure if you are a runner you have had some of these questions asked to you before!!! What are your favorite ones? Any that just really annoy you?!
Tomorrow is a long run for me!!!!
I also had the opportunity to try VegaSport recovery accelerator and will post my review about it tomorrow!!!!
