I Think I’m An Addict

Hey friends!

Happy Friday! All I can say is what.a.week. I’m tired and so ready to sleep in at least one or both days this weekend. And by sleeping in I mean maybe 6 a.m. If I’m lucky. By the way, why do people feel the need to say “You look tired”? It’s not a compliment and basically you’re saying I look like crap. Thanks for sharing. My day just got a million times better.

Yesterday I was scrolling through Facebook and found some fun running related links. Since it’s Fun Friday, I thought I’d share and because I don’t think my brain can process anything deeper than this right now.

I’ve got a confession to make: I’m an addict.

Runners AnonymousWhile I can say YES to most of the questions, medals do nothing for me. I’m not in it for the bling at all.

25 Things Non-Runners Don’t Get About Runners – I think I’m guilty of doing all 25 things as a runner but definitely NOT #20. That’s just plain crazy! And #10 is one of my worst running habits since becoming a blogger.

The 40 Best Worst Runner Costumes – It is the weekend before Halloween so I’m sure there are going to be a ton of new photos to add to this list. If you are running in costume this weekend and looking for ideas, I suggest #14 although you won’t be breaking any speed records with it. Seriously, where do people come up with some of these ideas?

BREAKING NEWS – Shake weights are not more effective than dumbbells. Did anyone ever believe that they were?

Have a great weekend everyone! I’ve got to go fuel my running addiction. :)

Are you a running addict?

Have you ever run in costume before?

  1. Your whole first paragraph sums up my week….and one of the reasons I love your blog!
    I’m sorry, but the Duke of Hazard and Forrest Gump costumes actually got a laugh out of me!

  2. LOL this article was funny. I have NEVER run in costume before. Seems like it would be a bit irritating. I would not consider myself a running addict but I think I have created a few with the monthly challenges I put out there. LOL! Folks now running in 34 degree weather at 5:30 am in the morning! I can relate to the 25 Things article. I know I just did #10 and am a victim of #18. My feet and legs look JUST LIKE THAT! Anywho – you just might be a running addict. :-) Cheers.

  3. Lol!!! Yes! I hate when people tell me I look tired. I wish they would just say what they’re really trying to say, “Wow you look like crap!” Um and my hubby totally bought a shake weight at one point! Hilarious!! Based on this criteria I am such an addict…then again I think I already knew that!

  4. I’m laughing about the shake weights–too funny! And yes, I fully own my addiction. Quite honestly, I think I AM too addicted to running. I’ll own it, but I won’t remedy it!

    Oh my gosh–number 20! No, no, no!

    Have a great weekend.

  5. According to the list I’m not a running addict since I don’t really race. And, I guess at this point in my life I’m not a true running addict. A work-out addict maybe!!!

  6. I.love.this. YES I’m a total addict and I do #3 way too much. I’m currently at a destination race and I did my last race two weeks ago! This is perfect timing. Can’t wait to check out the costumes:-)

  7. lol, I love when people say I look tired…..said NO one ever! It’s just mean. Obviously I know when I look tired and I am already self-conscious about it! haha. I used to be a running addict but not so much anymore. I still love running though but haven’t run any races in a while. I bet I’d start getting more addicted once I start participating in races again which is the plan post-baby!!

  8. Haha! Funny image for sure! Although I can completely relate to being a run addict, I have to say I am not there right now in my life… kind of the opposite, I have not been enjoying running. I have been doing a lot of slow trail running and I feel very happy. I’m not sure if it’s some of my health issues, but going fast doesn’t feel good like it used to. Oh geeze! I sound old.. “back in the old days, when I used move” gah! anyway I am having fun going slow. LOL!

  9. Ha! Great choice of articles for sure! I love how intricate some of the costumes got – crazy! I will drive (and sometimes fly) as far as it takes for those free bagels and tshirt! Yes, I am an addict and I will be running as the Flash in March – watch out!!
