“You run too much” and 7 other ridiculous things people tell me

For this blog, I wanted to quote handful of things I get told most every other weekend, and what I respond with. Hopefully this helps few people!

 

1. “You run too much.”

My standard answer for this is , just smile and wave. At times I throw in a stupid laugh which is not quite a smile but not a laugh as joke/laugh. Something in between.

2. “Why are you running so much”

My standard answer for this is , just smile and wave. At times I throw in a stupid laugh which is not quite a smile but not a laugh as joke/laugh. Something in between.

3. “Please don’t tell me you have a race tomorrow”

My standard answer for this is , just smile and wave. At times I throw in a stupid laugh which is not quite a smile but not a laugh as joke/laugh. Something in between. If you really have a race, then increase the intensity of that a tad bit!

4. “OMG What are you running from…”

My standard answer for this is , just smile and wave. At times I throw in a stupid laugh which is not quite a smile but not a laugh as joke/laugh.

5. “You have to do other stuff. not just run all the time”

My standard answer for this is , just smile and wave. At times I throw in a stupid laugh which is not quite a smile but not a laugh as joke/laugh.

6. “Why do you have to go to bed so early. Its only a 5k”

My standard answer for this is , just smile and wave. At times I throw in a stupid laugh which is not quite a smile but not a laugh as joke/laugh.

7. “You need to stop running”

My standard answer for this is , just smile and wave. At times I throw in a stupid laugh which is not quite a smile but not a laugh as joke/laugh.

8. “Wow you have to wake up that early to go run? why?”

My standard answer for this is , just smile and wave. At times I throw in a stupid laugh which is not quite a smile but not a laugh as joke/laugh.

I used to try to come up with sensible answers to tell people when they say these things, but in all honestly people that ask these questions have zero interest in what the hell you do with your time other wise anyways.  Running is personal, and as long as you and your heart is in it, don’t really bother trying to answer people’s questions like above.There are tons of other topics and questions to ask around to be pleasant. If you are hearing these from people that you know genuinely love you, hug them and pour them a glass of wine! If its some no name people, just pour yourself a glass of wine, and avoid eye contact with them at parties!
