  1. Haha brilliant!! ‘I hope your heart shits itself’ – quite possibly the best line ever 😀

  2. Number 2 is the ultimate for me. I’m not asking for some secret, intricate fistbump / handshake but a simple acknowledgement. Which is not very hard at all. If I see someone who is clearly going all out to avoid eye contact with me I holler ‘GOOD MORNING’ much louder than necessary.

    Number 5 should say be careful with water bottles full stop. I had some guy whilst doing the great north run on sunday who instead of dousing himself with water just sprayed it straight into my ear missing his own head!!! Thanks mate!!!

  4. Just to let you know ANYtime someone tells me that runner to the left bullshit I contemplate lunging at them like a football player. Running pet peeve.

  5. Great list AJ. I would add the ones with the beeping watches, the ones that compel runners to elbow you in the face every mile.

    Along the same lines as number 5, I hate when people running near me don’t take the 1 second required to look around them before hacking up the contents of their lungs and mouth and sending it soaring in whatever direction they please. I actually got gobbed on by some inconsiderate arsehole at my last park run. He was lucky he was much fitter and faster than me…

    #1 is funny and the first time I’ve gotten validation that it might be okay NOT to yell it. Nice list.
