Valentine’s Day is fast approaching…so what better day than today to post about my favorite topic that I love? Here are 10 signs in no particular order that you are head over heels for this wonderful sport.

1. You think about it all the time and can’t get enough running facts and tidbits from anywhere and everywhere…like a running nerd.

2. Seeing a runner out on their daily run makes you a little bit jealous sometimes. Especially if it is your rest day.

3. Your life at times revolves around when you can get those miles in.

4. You like to start the weekend with a nice long run. Ah, the great outdoors.


5. After running a marathon…you come home and immediately start looking up and planning your next race.

6. Most of your friends are runners. Let’s face it…they’re your homies for life.

7. You run up and down the street, sometimes in circles, in order to hit your desired mileage for the day. Or, if you’re like me…you MUST go over the mile marker. Every.time.


8. Running has been there for you through thick and thin. Breakups, makeups…all of the emotional stuff. When in doubt, just run it out.

9. The thought of the sun rising just makes you want to get out there and run…and snap a pic of course.

10. You cherish your running shoes like you would a pair of Christian Louboutins.

What are some things you love the MOST about running?

  1. 2a. should also include, being jealous of seeing someone run even though you finished your run earlier that morning!!!!

    having more than 7-10 pairs of running shoes — two each for speed work, long runs, trails, running in the pool shoes. LOL

  2. I guess I’m in love with running! All except for that I do not have any friends (in real life) that run. My husband runs but not as much as me and is injured. I even want running things for Valentine’s day! haha Love this post. 🙂

  3. Don’t tell Big A… Running is totally my side lover 🙂
    Cute post, and I wholeheartedly agree with all your points. And my running family is like my real family only a hair crazier (which is saying a lot) haha.

  4. Great list!! When you’re injured it always seems like everyone you know and everywhere you look there are runners!!! I have a slight problem with running shoes – I sort of cut myself off a few months ago:)
