  3. I run says:

    I think you’re dumb for insulting runners. Just cuz you can’t climb up the stairs without losing your breathe (; it’s enjoyable and one of the best feelings in the world. You’re actually just jealous that you cant run. Why else would you have the time of day to post this. Lol

    Most of it sound like envy. And I’m not even a runner.


    Yeah run periodically and never really talk about it.I am not one to brag about anything and honestly from a physical standpoint running and or jogging isn’t hard to do at all.Most of your post did come off as jealous you sound like you have a “friend” who likes to brag about jogging and it bothers you because you can’t if that’s the case they aren’t your friend and you don’t like them so you should keep them away from you.i jog and if another runner said “I hate jogging” I would think it was weird and I wouldn’t like it.its like the pretty girl who keeps saying “God I’m so ugly”.if your over weight and YOUR fine with that and your happy then that’s great.if you hate joggers because there fit and in good weight then just walk your lungs will natural open up and you will eventually run and eat healthy.

  6. Haha, I love the tongue in cheek humor of your list. I am a runner myself, and I admit to actually doing and saying some of these things to my friends! I didn’t have a clue how annoying this must be in some cases. Anyway, i love this post and I love running too, and I definitely don;t find it offensive!

    I try to refrain from obsessing over my running and my races when talking to my non-running buddies, but after all – it is an important part of my life, and I know that they support me and are happy for my good results. Nice list though – some of the points you are making are spot on. Thanks for this funny post!

    “I’m such a slob I missed my run yesterday!” and “I’m so out of shape” i always hear from my lazy friends. Hate it:) Thx for funny video!!!

  9. I often hear from my husband: “I only ran 18 miles instead of 20!” and “I’m so out of shape”! I never understood his logic.

    I have overcome my own laziness

  11. I love this post! I know it’s old and I’m a brand new reader, but I love your blog and I’m adding it to my Google Reader right now!

  12. I feel like this is a sport that is supposed to make you happy.

  13. I tried. I tried running. I hired a coach. I joined my husband club, tried to be friends with the clique-y runners. I was always there to see him off at his races, no matter how early in the morning, and I met him at every single aid station of the races at which I crewed him, and I was there with love and pride and comfort for him at every one of those finishes, no matter the time of day or night.
