- You can’t carry-on your luggage when on a short vacation because….running clothes/shoes/gear.

- You have strong opinions about GU/gels and Gatorade flavors. (Cucumber lime for the win!)

- You get overly excited about the first run in shorts in the spring.
- You pick your dog breed because it’s known to be a good running breed.
