15 Signs You Are Definitely A Runner

Ah, runners: a community of very quirky, endorphin junkies who take pleasure from testing their limits in what most would consider to be the most painful way possible. To outsiders, we are crazy, but we know that there’s nothing more amazing than crossing the finish line knowing that we’ve left it all out on the course. Though the rest of the world may not understand us, we do, and there are a few telltale ways to identify just who we are. You Know You’re A Runner When. . .

  15. During your race you swear you’ll never do it again, but once you hit the finish line you can’t wait for the next one!
