- All you want for Christmas is... a Garmin Forerunner 405.
- You avoid gaining weight over the holidays by signing up for a January half marathon.
- The stocking you hang by the chimney is a compression sleeve.
- You think people who make New Years resolutions are slowpokes. You've had next year's race calendar and training plan figured out since before Halloween.
- Screw the "duplex, and checks," if you helped Madonna* sing "Santa Baby," you'd have asked for a complimentary entry to the next Boston Marathon.
- You prefer cowbells to jingle bells.
- You don't understand why kids look so disappointed when they open a gift from Santa and it's a package of socks. You LOVE getting new socks (especially Injinjis)!
- When it snows in the middle of the day, some people worry about how they'll get home from work. You worry about how you'll get in the 5-mile run you planned.
- Christmas cookies and Hanukkah latkes = CARB LOADING.
- Speaking of treats... Some people pull chocolates out of an advent calendar every day in December. You think it's more exciting to run every day of the month to join the Runner's World holiday running streak.
- While your friends are still in bed nursing New Years Day hangovers, you'll be lacing up for a Resolution Run.
- Neighborhood children have confused you for Rudolph because you wear a blinking red light when you run in the evening. (It's dark out there!)
*Note: To all the web-people who think Marilyn Monroe sang that song... The version you're thinking of was sung by Madonna! Eartha Kitt sang it first in 1953. Marilyn never did (at least not on record).
