I'm not the only nutter on here. Yay!
Emailed the hotel for my wedding to check they had a treadmill in the gym!?
...caught yourself snot rocketing whilst shopping....
...or couldnt be bothered washing my hair since I'm off for another run in the morning and it'll just get sweaty again, whats the point....
Really, this is too much now. Revealing how disgusting I am. Stop it Elli. Now.
..... You get back from your long run... relax for a bit then think... I could easily make it 20 miles for the day if I went out and ran another few miles......
Then you realise you have plans for the afternoon.......... then you wonder how you can get out of the plans and get back out there.....
When you see someone wearing dirty trainers, you just know they run.
When waiting in a changing room, you can't help notice over pronating feet sticking out below the curtains
........Your race bag contains more ointments, rubs, plasters, straps, weird stuff for feet than the local Boots counter.
.........even though you can barely make it up and down the stairs as it feels you've been kneecapped by the local mob you still do a 16 mile long run, cos it don't hurt on the flats.
........You actually pay someone to prod, poke and violently massage you past the point of screaming.
.......Thinking that lycra looks so good on you that you go out and parade around in crowded areas.
......... Buying frozen peas not to eat but to put on your knees after a run.
My first time on the furum...
I like reading through this thread, makes me feel normal (well as normal as the rest of you!)

You think that having a shower without having had a run first is a waste of water and time.
You ask the hairdresser to leave enough hair to tie into a pony-tail, so it doesn't get in your face when you run, rather than going with what suits you.
It starts to rain in the middle of summer, and you think "great, I won't overheat"
you spend more time on your own outside then you do with the OH or family/friends!!
you become the witness in a horrible crime as you was seen running in the area (dont know about anyone else but i have no idea whats going on when im in running mode!!!!)
when you are quite happy to talk to complete strangers and tell them your most embarrassing stories....
