  • My first time on the furum...

    I like reading through this thread, makes me feel normal (well as normal as the rest of you!)

  • Mmmmm......bodyglide  image.  Not only do family know that running kit is the gift of choice, my secret Santa at work fr the past two years has provided me with a buff and a running jacket.  I think thei were harbouring thoughts of gagging me with the buff and tying the arms of the jacket together like a straight jacket so that they could get some peace!

    ......... Buying frozen peas not to eat but to put on your knees after a run.

    LOL - I don't eat peas - I can't stand the taste, they make me gag but there's a 2 year old packet of Birds Eye in the freezer............. funniest thing is coming home from work to find my 19 yr old son eating fish fingers, chips and peas that he's just made himself......image.  I didn't tell him!!

    You think that having a shower without having had a run first is a waste of water and time.

    You ask the hairdresser to leave enough hair to tie into a pony-tail, so it doesn't get in your face when you run, rather than going with what suits you.

    It starts to rain in the middle of summer, and you think "great, I won't overheat"

  • you spend more time on your own outside then you do with the OH or family/friends!!

    you become the witness in a horrible crime as you was seen running in the area (dont know about anyone else but i have no idea whats going on when im in running mode!!!!)

  • when you are quite happy to talk to complete strangers and tell them your most embarrassing stories....

    Or you become the suspect fleeing the scene of the crime, a manhunt begins and if they can't catch you....it becomes a reconstruction on crimewatch!!! image
  • the tesco bag in the boot of the car is full of race kit so no space for the shopping
  • .....when your child wakes up poorly and the first thing you think is 'oh no, where can I get a sitter so I can run'

    That's bad isn't it ? To myself next time!image

  • when you have to wash your running kit separately from your other clothes because it has taken on a peculiar odour all of its own...
  • no, that's not bad Lucy.  A bit odd perhaps, but not bad! image
  • Odd, I can live with odd ....infact odd is a requirement for a long distance runner, right?!

  • i know the feeling.

    i don't wear my contacts or glasses when running!

    Me & the mrs in London - I'm carrying her handbag. She suggests a race back to the hotel. Halfway back I realise I'm holding a women's handbag, with her running after me......
