What kind of runner are you? What do I mean by this? Let me explain…
On Saturday I was able to get out for a run – I probably covered just about 3-4 miles. It was 4pm, the sun was still out, and it was warm enough in Wisconsin to run in capri leggings, a long-sleeve shirt, hat and gloves. Yes, you read correctly. February in Wisconsin and I didn’t need a new wardrobe for warmth.
There were a lot of people out and about and I found I was having to bob and weave between students, tourists, people a little intoxicated after the afternoon UW vs. Ohio State basketball game…
I turned into one of those “Excuse me, pardon me” runners and finally just ran in the street (out of traffic, of course).
Are you a runner who:
– Says “excuse me, pardon me” loudly as you run up behind people who won’t get out of the way?
– Jogs in place, does a set of jumping jacks, touches your toes, and checks your watch all while waiting for a traffic light to change?
– Does your entire stretching program in the middle of the race line-up about 3 minutes before the start gun goes off at a road race?
I’m a little embarrassed by that one!
– You sing out loud while running along–outdoors or even at the gym–you don’t care who hears you!
– And finally:
There you have it! Keep running, my friends.
