You know you haven’t run in a while when…

You know you haven’t run in a while when…

  • you suddenly have so much time
  • you feel satisfied with eating less or you continue to eat like you do while you ran, and you start gaining weight
  • your GPS watch is completely out of battery
  • your laundry basket is really empty
  • you forget to take a shower, or you take a shower, but don’t feel compelled to wash your hair
  • your running shoes are not always underfoot, or on your feet
  • you run errands dressed like a civilian
  • you look up rates for the nearest pool, or nearest gym
  • you calculate how much time to can take off without interrupting your next scheduled race
  • you no longer feel the urge to nap on the afternoon after a long run
  • your neighbors check in on you because they’ve become used to seeing you run past their windows
  • your family is surprised to find you actually in bed when they come in your room in the morning
  • friends remember to include you in their plans for Friday night, since they finally realized that you haven’t been waking up early on Saturday
  • you discover you actually have hobbies outside of running
  • your room/house is cleaner than it’s been in ages
  • you suddenly have so much time!

and so you can’t wait to get back to it.
