  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.

    I had a guy yell “You didn’t train to walk!” when I took a walking break. That asshat was just standing on the sideline like some smug jerk. He wasn’t running. Plus, he was the kind of guy who tucks his t-shirt into his jeans and belts it. What a tool….

    “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.

    “Looking strong” and “good running” especially when they say looking strong in the first half of a race! I always feel like replying “I should +#%^ing hope I do, I’ve only just started!”
