11 Signs That You Might be a Runner

In honor of Jeff Foxworthy’s “You might be a Redneck,” here are 11 signs you might be a runner…
  1. If you’ve ever driven a car, just to measure how far you ran …. you might be a runner.
  2. If you ever judge the color of your urine to determine your level of hydration … you might be a runner.
  3. If you lost a toenail from running and you showed it off with a sense of accomplishment … you might be a runner.
  4. If you’ve ever thought a 3 mile run was too short and not really worth the time or effort … you might be a runner.
  5. If you’ve ever covered your nipples with band-aids and you didn’t think it was the least bit weird … you might be a runner.
  6. If you can run and blow snot out of your nose at the same time … you just might be a runner.
  7. If while running in sub-freezing┬átemperatures, you have sweat freeze on your cap, AND you think it’s cool … you might be a runner.
  8. If you’ve ever used the words “6 miles run” and “easy” in the same sentence … you might be a runner.
  9. If you know what a fartlek is … you just might be a runner.
  10. If you’ve ever had a conversation with 5 guys about where you buy your tights … you might be a runner.
  11. If you talk about your running shoes like they are a car. “Yea, I’ve got about 600 miles on these babies. They look a little rough on the outside, but lace ’em up and they’ll still purr like a kitten”… you might be a runner.

“Running won’t add years to your life, but it definitely adds life to your years!”

Have a great weekend … and if you get some time … go for a run.

    Okay. It’s official. I’m not a runner, but I can actually blow my nose while in motion. Comes from walking around the plow and tractor to get back into the cab after fixing something on the plow, not from running :-)

  2. Erika Cox says:

    Haha. I enjoyed this. I just joined the cross country team here at WNMU, and loving every minute of it. :) Actually thought about you during a run the other day. I was like, Trey runs. I’m running. Cool.

    Have a blessed day. ^_^

  3. Greg England says:

    I’m NOT a runner. However, I do live in California and it wouldn’t necessarily be a sign of a runner to hear 5 guys out here talking about where they buy their tights. :)

  4. Jeff Slater says:

    Good stuff Trey! I can relate with all of them, except number 6. I still can’t blow snot out of my nose while running. I’ll have to work on that…..

  5. Katie Rayner says:

    I can show you one sign of not being a runner…ok actually it’s called a picture!

  6. Jo Baird says:

    I am not a runner – thankfully! This is all very gross. Your mom.

  7. Allix says:

    Loved this Trey!! So true! If I come home during dec. we’ll have to go on some morning runs!

  8. Su says:

    I am not with you on 5-7 (#5 for obvious reasons, #6 because I’m a wiper, not a blower, and #7 because I would never call it cool), but I hear ya about the shoes. I’m not a girly girl, so I never had a conversation about shoes in my life (other than, “NO, mother, I will not wear heels) until I became a runner. Now I’m talking about shoes all the time, and not just running shoes: “Are you kidding? I can’t wear flip-flops, I’m a runner!” or “High heels will screw up my feet, and I need those for running.” :)

  9. Bo says:

    You did not mention running in snow blowing so hard from the North that the body extremity in the middle of your body becomes numb.

  10. vanilla says:

    So NOT a runner, but I have two sons who are. They got a link to this!

  11. Janet says:

    that’s it! I’m a runner! And…I may be a girl…but I’ve mastered the snot rocket! It’s a necessity for a few situations…
    1. Allergy season in the back roads
    2. Cold weather that REQUIRES you to have a runny nose..urgh
    3. long runs…

  12. Glenna Garcia says:

    Well that blows it. I can’t blow snot out of my nose without a tissue. Bummer.

  13. I found out I can somewhat run in 3 inch heels if I see a roach nearby…does that count?

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
