10 signs you’re training for a marathon (or beyond)

 

  1. You consider 05:00 a normal time to wake up on a Saturday.
  2. Your feet are disgusting.
  3. You show pictures of your feet to everyone.

    Actually not that bad.

  4. Waking up early for a long run and realizing your Garmin isn’t charged is the worst thing.  Ever.

    But friends who lend you theirs to finish your run are the best!

  5. You actually enjoy the pain of a sports massage/foam roller/massage stick.
  6. A large pizza and a side of garlic bread is a delightful starter.
  7. You consider compression socks formal attire.
  8. Your sofa is your best friend after a long run, and it develops some kind of magnetic power over you for several hours after you sit down.
  9. You think people who invite you to their wedding in a different city are just so inconsiderate for not thinking about your schedule when they planned their big day.
  10. You feel invincible and decide that, yes, a 12 hour race in September sounds delightful!
