  1. I hate “you’re almost there”! People seem to have a gross misunderstanding of where “almost there” is. I think in a marathon I need to be inches away from the finish line before I’d appreciate that. I also hate the one you mentioned of “you’re looking good!” because I know I’m not. In my last race someone yelled it and it was hot and sticky and I know I looked like a drowned rat. Ha! This is a funny post.

    “Run, Forrest, Run!” This phrase never dies and is annoying.

  4. I HATE when people have signs or yell about walking in marathons or “eating hills” ….”No time to walk!!” That’s really rude especially coming from someone ON THE SIDELINES!! I guess they think they’re helping? Ugh. Trust me, if I could run, I would. I want to be DONE.
