    Ha! I’m number 7. Though I’m not usually saying anything quite so positive or polite to myself. Usually more along the lines of “Fuck off legs. No you are NOT hurting and if you give up on me now I’ll make you pay you bastards” I’m normally a very quiet, polite person and I don’t often swear, except at my legs when I’m running. It helps.

    I almost turned into runner #5. My first half they ran out of water and cups by mile 7. Also since they advertised GU I brought none (It was a destination race) but they had none of that either. My next few races after that were over prepared for sure.

    I am however that weirdo who wears a fuel belt or carries a hand held for water on 5k races. But I only run those anymore with my 7 and/or 8 year old with me and they need water during those shorter distances where as I do not.

    I am a touch of 2 with a good dose of 7. The elbows help keep the bikers at a safe distance. Beside the odd conversation with myself I occasional blurt out a Rick Flair “Woooo!” on long runs with tunnels or underpasses.

    I haven’t exactly been #8, but now that I’m in my 40s I have to pee all the time, It is miserable to have a full bladder while running. I’ve had to come up with a few off road strategies to get through a long run.

    Btw this was a riot. Well done! Thanks for making me laugh. 🙂

    Haha! But you missed – parent without children on gleeful sprint, cramming in as much run in the frugal portion of time afforded to them

    Brilliant! Was looking a few pointers for my first run and this made me lol. Look forward to spotting a few of these and discovering which one I am……
