Things people brag about that are unique to RA. (Read 1317 times)

    Let's start a list:

     

    How they know that running is simple and it's best to go by feel (while carefully monitoring pace, elevation change, footwear cost per mile, heart rate, cadence, and time of last bowel movement.)

     

    How cool it is that Nobby, like, posted on my thread.

     

    How the beer they drink comes from the smallest town and is made with the most organic ingredients.

     

    How intelligent their training is because they know how to run easy.

     

    How they don't take NSAIDS.

      "I won my first marathon even though it was only Trent's goofy podunk race."

       

      "I run so much slower than you on my easy days."

       

      "I have met Eric Smile in real life and know his wife's real name."

       

      "I just donated to RA."

       

      "I have a near perfect recall of some race I ran against some guy in high school.  In fact, as I'm typing this I hear the music from Vision Quest."

       

      "I only drink unhomogenized milk from cows I know personally."

      Runners run.

            I'm partly responsible for the creation of this particular sub-forum (I think Wingz, Trent, and backroadrunner had a hand in its creation, as well).

                      "2:27 marathon ? ha thats nothing I have hiked 100 miles"

                      "As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man I have chalked up many a mile. Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks, And I've learned much from both of their styles." ~ Jimmy Buffett

                       

                      "I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit. "No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."”

                        I'm so intelligent that I can find numerous flaws in the arguments of the insane.

                              When I read about Nobby and Kristen in Running Times, they were more than just names.

                                I peed on a tree next to I-95 in the Baltimore Marathon.  Drivers honked at me.
