Why Running Sucks

These posts absolutely cracked me up! Those of you still sitting on the fence and trying to decide whether to take that first step into running - may be these will turn you off forever! or make you so confused that you will get up from your butt and go run that first km

This is a gem. Especially this comment: "You forgot to mention that most people look really stupid while running. Beyond what to do with their hands, runners seem to be torn about what sort of facial expression to make. Is it best to look like the running is easy and smile, only to risk bugs getting plastered to your teeth. Or, is it better to have the constipated look, showing how much effort it is to be physically fit"

This one from an ex-runner trying to return to running:

I like this quote from this lady: "I have large "let's give Cindy a black eye while she bounces up and down" breasts. Not fun and quite frankly, a little on the painful side"

And this is inspiring for newbie:

And this lady said it all:

"1. Because I can't remember the last time I slept past 10 am.
2. Once you stop running you eat for two.
3. The only "Elements" you ever have to worry about is water and gatorade.
4. If you run and trip, people laugh, then ask you for directions."
