Looking for the perfect motivation to get out there and pound the pavement? Start here with some of the best running memes created in the history of running memes!
MY FAVORITE TOPIC
If you're like most of the runners out there (I'm guilty...) your favorite conversation topic is your morning run, upcoming race schedule, how early you get up to run, running horror story.....the list could go on - and so could you, I'm sure!
RUNNING A MARATHON
Yup, that about sums it up. We understand your pain...
THE BEST SPORT
Insert your favorite cliche "running is a sport" saying here:
"My sport is your sport's punishment"
"Date a runner, every other athlete is a player"
It goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway - RUNNING IS A SPORT!!
I don't care if I'm running through a beautiful Swiss meadow or through back alleys in the city, when I get out and run, it somehow makes everything in life seem better. Worries slip away, my mind becomes clear and my body feels energized.
Forget laughter, running is the best medicine!
HATERS GONNA HATE
Then there are those haters out there who think that running actually makes your day worse haha! And okay, I'll admit, some of my runs end up like that....but I don't talk about those! Cause I love running too much, and even the worst days aren't bad enough to keep me from going out again.
JUST FOR FUN
Since we're still experiencing the snow (at least here in Utah) let's try to make the best of it with a little snowball running humor.
I LIVE FOR LONG RUNS
And forget about going up and down the stairs! I'm about to move into a single floor condo just because of this...because I'm not giving up my long runs, oh no.
IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE
I've given up trying to explain why I run to my non-runner friends. Instead, I'll try to convince them to come running with me and say "it's okay, I'll go slow!" Ha, like they ever take me up on that offer :P If they ever did, I'm convinced they would understand me better...
HOW FAR DID YOU RUN?
They say to not judge other people - but in this case, I'd say it's fair. Dang all those fair-weather, 3-mile runners!!!
THERE IS NO OFF SEASON
But the feeling of coming home, taking off your frozen socks and flopping down on the rug in front of the fireplace is all worth it!.....right?? Maybe once your frozen eyelids begin to thaw.
THIS IS WHY I RUN
You don't have to be faster than the bear, just faster than the person you're with! I run to increase my chances of survival.
BELIEVE ME, OFFICER...MY CAUSE WAS JUST
Back to the little elf above, tell me that running isn't a sport, I dare you! It IS too a sport. You're just jealous because my calves are so much sexier than yours, aren't you?
IS IT JUST ME?
At the beginning of any race I've run. Thinking to myself - am I the only amateur runner here? Also true at the end of any race I've run.......dang I should have done more hills/miles/squats/eaten less ice cream/been born on a different continent....
Well, that's it for now! If you're looking for a sweet event to join, come run the Dusk to Dawn Relay Race at the Bonneville Salt Flats, UT. You know it's on your bucket list to run on a god-forsaken, white and salty piece of earth through the entire night....if that doesn't sound awesome, maybe these memes don't relate to you lol ;) Or maybe you're just not insane like the rest of us....either way, check it out at www.dusktodawnrelay.com
