You Might Be A Cross Country Runner If...
by Jordan



...your shoes have more miles on them than your car does. need a magnifying glass to see your name in the paper.

...people say, "You run three once?"

...all your socks are either stained or torn. run farther in a week than your bus travels for meets.

...your mom tells you to run to the store because it takes too long to drive. find yourself running between classes just because. combine phrases like "10 mile run" and "Easy Run" in the same breath. can eat your weight in spaghetti.

...the paint from the bathroom walls peels when you leave.

...your spit strings from your chin and you don't even care.

...a meal involves more than 3 servings. spend more on training clothes than school clothes. wear those same training clothes to school regularly.

...your christmas list includes more than one pair of running shoes. feel lost without your water-bottle. have running withdrawl if you don't run everyday. eat spaghetti three times a day.

...the mile in P.E. becomes your warm-up.

...your Saturdays for the next 4 years are ruined. can see your ribs thru your shirt. have to run around in the shower to get wet. are always hungry. are running in your dreams. have no life besides running.

...your weekends are shot. wake up with cotton mouth.

...your are as skinny as a twig. can sharpen an axe blade on your calves. can maintain a 5:30 pace while throwing up. can count all your ribs. own spandex in more than 1 color.

...track is the other "sport".

...a 12 mile run is an easy day., pasta, pizza, & pasta are your four food groups.

...your watch is more expensive and complicated than your car.'re running and you don't know why.

...your spit hits everything but the ground. have 3% or less body fat. laugh at sprinters while they run. talk to your coaches more than your parents.'d rather run than watch T.V.

...watching the New York Marathon on T.V. made you get up and go for a run.

...more than half the people you know don't know what X-C is.

...your calves are bigger than your biceps. can't go a day without some little brat saying "Run Forest Run."

...some little kid wants to know why you're running in your underwear. refer to puke as a bodily function.

...people always ask you what events you are running. can say more names of your runs than names of your friends. always win in your sleep but never in a real race. drink more water than Free Willy.
