Things that make you swear when you run (Read 1726 times)

    kicking the back of my leg with my foot
      Realizing that I forgot to apply Body Glide at about mile 5 of a 10 mile run. OOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!

        Running past someone smoking, doing laundry with especially strong detergent/softner, or using a gas leaf blower...all of which make my lungs swear.
          Getting 30 miles into a 36 mile run only to come over a pass and find thigh deep unconsolidated sugar snow with a 1/4" crust of ice on top... and two hours of daylight left. My friend hated it more than me cause he was wearing shorts:
            The fact that I'm out of shape.

              See you live in Boulder. I went to University of Colorado way back in the last century...I still try to get back to Boulder once a year (at least). On the thread...I get cranked when I realize I don't have the transmitter for my Nike chip.

                + another one on the cars. Especially the guy pulling out of the grocery store parking lot who looked right at me and then said he didn't see me when I yelled at him.
                +2 -- what I refer to as the "rolling right turn" ... looking left but you are approaching against traffic ... never really stops -- knucklehead [happened 2x's this AM.]

                  YES!!! Why are people so OBTUSE?
                    People are idiots. i've kicked the side of a car or two that's done one of those turns. The guy was scared to death of me. Most people don't bother me, except I had a group of 12-15 year olds surround me and start bothering me in a run a few years ago. I told them I couldn't take them all at once but I would seriously injure 3 of them because I wasn't above beating down a bunch of dumb teenagers. Then I asked "which of you is willing to take a 60% chance on going to the hospital today?" I had no takers, and a big grin on my face for the rest of the run.
                      Bloody nipples. That hurt for days afterwards. Ever come across that spray on plaster (bandaid) stuff? Do not. I repeat, do not, spray this onto bloody nipples. Trust me on this.

                        My eyes teared up a bit.. oww. I think I'm going to have this problem when my mileage gets higher later this year. Medical tape best bet?
                          Any tape which is going to stay on. I have a hairy chest - am going to have to shave for my longer runs & races - I see this as an afront to my masculinity.

                            Because everybody wants to be the warden.

                                Today, as I was running on the correct side of a deserted road, a car came speeding up from behind me, crossing the yellow line as he passed me. WTF?
