You might be a runner if... (2012 holiday edition)

You might be a runner if...
(holiday edition)
  • All you want for Christmas is... a pair of zero-drop shoes.
  • When you pack for holiday travel, running clothes take up more space than all your other clothes combined.
  • Santa confuses your wish list with a Runner's World gear guide.
  • Some people spend December wrapping presents. You're wrapping up your racing season.
  • Candy canes = Carbs.
  • When you hear the Hanukkah story about the miracle of the oil that lasted for eight days, you wonder what training plan it used to build up that kind of endurance.
  • You wish someone would invent eggnog-flavored Gu.
  • When someone asks if you'd like hot chocolate, you think they're asking for a 15k race report.
  • The stocking you hang by the chimney is a compression sock.
  • You decorate your Christmas tree with race medals.

  • You avoid gaining weight over the holidays by run-streaking between Thanksgiving and the New Year.
  • You don't fit in most winter knee-high boots because your calves are too big.
  • On Festivus you know you've got "feats of strength" covered, but your "airing of grievances" issues all relate to plantar fasciitis and IT band problems.
  • You can eat your weight in Christmas cookies after a long run.
  • Your yes or no RSVP to a holiday party depends on whether or not you have a race the following morning.
  • At holiday parties, your idea of "small talk" involves fartleks. (And you wonder why people shy away...)
  • You prefer cowbells to jingle bells.
  • Santa tried to recruit you for this year's sleigh team because he saw you running at night... wearing a blinking red light.
  • You don't need New Year's Resolutions. You have a 2013 race schedule and training plan.
