“I am not a runner…” July 14, 2007

Posted by Joe in funny, video.

Saw this linked on the RW forums and loved it.

Though I love running, I do share the man’s perspective about what “really sucks.”

Thanks for a good laugh this morning. I laughed hard at this clip!

Didn’t like the last line though – “I am not a runner, yet..” I am feeling a sense of mission to get the running industry to recognize us walrus, penguins, trucks, waddlers, etc as runners. :}

Yeah, I agree with your sentiment, but think it’s less elitist and more optimistic – even if it misunderstands the nature of being a runner.

He’s doesn’t consider himself a runner yet, because he still thinks it “sucks.” But he believes he will be a runner some day, meaning he will come to love it. IMO, it’s funny and hopeful.

I also think that is the experience of a lot of people. They start running for one reason, but then continue running for a different reason: they love running itself. Then again, what do I know?! 🙂 I’m just thinking while typing.
