Why I HATE Running
After being inspired by the Running Fatboy (aka Dennis), I came up with my own hate list about running. Many thanks to you, bro. =)
10 Aside from Gatorade, you’ll be spending on energy gels/beans, which don’t come really cheap.
09 You’re pressured to finish a road race in the fastest possible time so you’ll have something to brag about to your friends – only problem is, you may have the fastest time, but you’ll be so wasted after the race that you can barely walk.
08 Skin chaffing. Nuff said.
07 After running you don’t have enough energy to perform any other activity (like watching TV, surfing the net, or romancing your significant other). It’s off to the bed for you.
06 There’s lots of training plans about running, but which one is the best among all of them?
05 You think about it all the time, Pondering about running is good in itself, but it can get in the way of your work. For example, you’re deep in thought about which running route to tackle after dealing with the workday, or how long you should run.
04 Potential sunburn, especially if running on open environments during summertime!
03 You’re making yourself prone to vehicular accidents, especially if you do a long distance run or a runabout. Hence, that’s additional reflector gear for you.
02 It’s not really a cheap sport, as many people claim. Once you get hooked, you’ll be buying the Garmins/Suuntos, HRMs, road IDs, running apparel that suit you well, and a good pair of running shoes that you’ll have to replace often, especially if you favor running long distances.
01 Waking up very early to participate in a road race. Why bother getting up as early as 4AM on a weekend to pump yourself up when you could sleep it off until noon? Hehe! So bad of me.
