>General Running>Are you a warrior, purist, socializer, or exerciser?
Most of my answers were either A or D, so apparently my running personality is somewhere between 'warrior' and 'exerciser'.
The 'warrior' part of me thinks of running in terms of training, working towards goals, both short term and long term. I love all the planning, the numbers and stats involved. The 'exerciser' part of me runs for physical benefits, weight management and disease prevention.

I look forward to the day when I will be able to run without caring about the miles, the pace, the calories, ...
I'm definitely a purist and scored that on the quiz- I also know this because I was looking through past log entries the other day and realized that every comment entry uses the phrase "I felt....." and "Felt like..." Apparently I'm constantly trying to get in touch with myself ... Wait, that sounded dirty.
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
I haven't seen the quiz (will have to remember to pick up a copy of RW but I'd have to say Warrior for me since that describes me in most anything I do lol
You and Jeff are both dirty perverted hippies.
