You know you've taken your running to another level when...

I just realized I have a designated pair of running shoes for running in the rain. Wow, just a few months ago I couldn't run 3 miles without walking a bunch of times. Take this challenge and tell us the reason you know that you're running has gone up to a new level.

Bridget C You know you've taken your running to another level when... Challenge

Contributorgold Bridget C Tired, sore and don't have enough time/just don't want to fit in planned 13K... so change route, drop off 2km and add some hills to compensate... and feel secretly pleased about my "slacking, easy run" I did instead. Then realised I didn't cheat myself at all, my "slack run" was an awesome run in an awesome time :)

James M You know you've taken your running to another level when... Challenge

Contributorgold James M Used to only run to stay fit for my annual medical and pretty much loathed every step. Now after 3 half marathons and currently training for my first full marathon, I actually enjoy it :-) (even in the foul weather we get here in Scotland). I know my running has reached a new level because I'm a stone lighter than when I started and I ran 17.39 mile on Sunday. My longest to date :-)

Contributorgold Ryan B I too have a special pair of shoes just for running in the rain, and I used the crap out of them tonight. Was a really exciting run.

That is really strange that they used your town of all places in the US... :) It must be a sign. Of what I don't know... haha

God hopefully it's not a sign you're going to visit here. I can take you out for a drink at Applebee's, and that would be the official start and end of our evening. Unless the aforementioned Super Walmart tickles your fancy.

Contributorgold Karen F You know you've taken your running to another level when... I wear long johns under my running pants just so that I don't have to stop because it's too cold out. Last week I ran at 21 degrees F, coldest this season (so far).

Kasia K You know you've taken your running to another level when... Challenge

Contributorgold Kasia K Well, I started running in early March this year and I could not run 2miles without stopping. By the end of that month I ran my first 5k (32 mins), by the end of May I had my first 10k race behind my belt (1hr 7mins) and the second one in early July (1hr 2mins). And finally, I ran my first HM two weeks ago (2hrs 18mins)!! But what makes me really proud is not only the progress in my endurance, but also I feel I'm a stronger runner. Last week I ran 5k in 27mins and 10k in 58mins. It simply makes me happy and amazed how our bodies respond to the exercise and we can really progress A LOT! :)))

Fiona J You know you've taken your running to another level when... Challenge

Contributorgold Fiona J When you walk uninjured into a pyhsio therapy clinic and after 30mins of poking prodding & dry needling later you hobble out in pain with a smile on your face after paying 55euro for the privilage! Anything to loosen up those muscles pre Marathon! ;-)

Carole C You know you've taken your running to another level when... Challenge

Contributorgold Carole C You know you've taken your running to another level when you haven't had much sleep in a few nights, went to work anyways and only dreamed of going back to bed as soon as you arrive home. But instead, you put all your running gear on and go for a run in order to respect the scheduled runs for the month!

Luis S You know you've taken your running to another level when... Challenge

Contributorgold Luis S You crash on you bike on Saturday after about 70 miles of riding. You get knocked out, road rash on your face, knuckles, arm, knee and ankle. Stitches above your eye. But you still wake up at 4:30 AM on Sunday and do a 16 mile long run. Then you tell your coach about the injury....

Luis, I must confess that I took a tumble off my bike last week, somersaulted over the handlebars at top speed. Quite a bit of grazing on my shoulder, and a number of bruises that continue to pop up!
