I ran a 5k showing my middle finger & Things non-runners say

   

   

Hello there!

I just finished a 5k run in my old hometown in Germany! I finished in 35 mins, which is my 2nd best time ever :)
The weather was bad... It was raining like crazy, and cold (around 60F). I felt great throughout the run though. Except the last 50 yards before the finish line. But I made it!

I was so freaking thirsty after I finished,
but the only thing they were serving in the finisher area was NEAR BEER! Yuck!! I kept asking for water, but no one knew where to get some, so I just left and had some water at my sister's place.

Another odd thing was the couple of track marshals, standing next to the track, SMOKING!!! This is a no go, and when I told one guy that I think it's ridiculous to do that while we run past them, that douche even asked me if I want a cigarette! Sorry, but I had to show him my middle finger.  #sorrynotsorry

Since someone asked me the worst question ever after my race, I want to share this list with you. Please remember this next time you talk to a runner:

Things non-runners say that are (not) funny:

  • So, how was your run? Did you win?
  • You know you could probably get the same running shoes at Wal-Mart for much cheaper!
  • How far is a 5K marathon?
  • How do you keep your uterus from falling out?
  • I would run but my doctor says it might be bad for my knees.
  • Can you send texts from that fancy watch of yours?
  • I don’t run anymore, but in high school I ran a sub three minute mile.
  • Aren’t you worried about having a heart attack? That happens a lot during marathons you know. (fact: happens to one in 100,000 people)
  • I thought runners were skinny. You still look like you could lose a few.
