Like many runners that have mentioned to co-workers or new acquaintances that they are runners you will inevitably get the question of “So why do you run?” It is a bit of a difficult question to give a quick response to and usually opens up a number of other questions or cliche responses. Most people that are not runners probably just don’t understand simply because they haven’t experienced they type of running that you have and that’s not a bad thing. However, it can be difficult to explain so here are some more creative ways to respond. If you have any others please share in the comments below.
1. Because when the Zombie Apocalypse happens only the fast will survive.
2. Because if we played “Tag” you’d be it FOREVER!
3. Chick dig nice legs.
4. Look at them and simply shrug and say, “Well, with the economy and all…” (People seem to blame the economy for everything the last 5+ years so why not.)
5. Because every 2.04 miles I run I burn the same amount of calories in a donut and I have a donut eating problem.
