You Might Be a Runner if...

1. If you have more running clothes than regular clothes in your laundry pile.

2. If you have a drawer full of medals and trophies that you're not sure what to do with.

3. If you go into Starbucks more often to use the bathroom than to actually buy coffee.

4. If you no longer make fun of fanny packs because your running belt looks remarkably similar.

5. If the salespeople at your local running shop know you by name.

6. If at least one of your email addresses has the word "run" or "runner" in it.

7. If you no longer hate port-a-johns. In fact, there have been times when you've been very happy to see one.

8. If you wear your running watch even when you're not running. ("It matches, right?")

9. If you spend more time researching running routes than local restaurants when traveling to a new city.

10. If you know how to correctly spell and pronounce plantar fasciitis.

11. If your only recent photos of you alone are race photos.

12. If your runs are sometimes longer than your commute to work or school.

13. If your running partners know more about your bodily functions than your significant other.

14. If you can say "fartlek" without getting embarrassed...

....then you might be a runner.
