On Wednesday I posted the first five of ten running rules from www.active.com. These are some fun rules and I have to say great conversation pieces. If you are a runner you will appreciate these rules and probably have your own entertaining stories to go along with them. Here are the last five.
* Aim Bodily Fluids Carefully. I have to say that I personally have been hit by snot rockets and spit which is so gross. I do blow a snot rocker every so often and I make sure no one is in the line of fire. Also, when you throw away your half cup of water please be sure not to hit a fellow runner.
* Dress For Your Mom.Yes, we have all seen the crazy dressers at the marathons. I ran next to the Cheetos Cheetah in the New York marathon and the teletubbies. The worst I have to say are those people who don't cover up certain areas. I ran next to a guy wearing a Speedo and let's just say he had no business being in a Speedo. Mother's were covering their children's eyes!
* NO WHINNING. Need I say more?
* Just Run. If you like running with headphones then run with headphones. Don't listen to people who will tell you it's not cool, etc. What matters is you're running and enjoying yourself. Who cares how or the way you're getting it done. Just do it!
Running is great exercise and a lot of fun to most people. I love it! These rules can help you with your running etiquette or at least give you a good laugh!
