Sh*t Runners Say

10 Jan

Credit for the inspiration goes to Twitter follower Cara Hawkins who tweeted “Has nobody done a #shitrunnerssay yet?”.  First, check out her blog @ http://www.runningshoegeek.com/ there’s some good stuff on there and I like her pre-race preview of the Marathon Trials.

Ok well if you’ve read “Sh*t My Dad Says” or any of the trending topics which go #shitmy(insert noun here)says then this’ll seem familiar.  Here’s the EatRunSwag take on it!

This post is slightly offensive, you’ve been warned.

 

I’VE GOT A SUCH A RUNNERS HIGH RIGHT NOW!

Not as good as a Swimmers High

 

WHAT WOULD PRE DO???

Probably This.

 

MOST SPORTS REQUIRE ONE BALL, OURS TAKES TWO.

This guy definitely has a big pair.

HAVE YOU READ BORN TO RUN? I’M DEF GETTIN SOME VIBRAMS!

A Cowboys Fan wearing Vibrams...it figures..

 

ONLY 90 MILES THIS WEEK!

Or in Cam's case, "Only 130 miles this week!"

KARA GOUCHER IS SO HOTT

This one I agree with.

 

WILL _(ELITE HIGH SCHOOL RUNNER)__ BREAK FOUR IN THE MILE THIS YEAR?

Well, I guess the answer to that question last year was yes.

 

WHY DONT GIRLS LIKE US??

This. This is why.

 

 

More installments of this to come in the future. Please feel free to send me messages on facebook if you have suggestions!

5 Worst Pieces of Running Gear of 2011

20 Dec

1500 views yesterday, thanks y’all!  Probably won’t post for a couple days now, going to spend the day with the gf and her family tomorrow then off to Texas Wednesday morning. Here’s the next list!

The WORST pieces of running gear from 2011

5.) VIBRAMS

Die.

While technically not new to 2011, they seemed to get more popular than ever this year.  So popular that I’ve seen people wearing them in the store, in restaurants, and in class.  STOP IT.

Side Note- Barefoot running can be good for you.  So instead of paying 120 bucks, why don’t you just find a soccer field and do a few miles barefoot to supplement your running?

4.) RUNNING IN CARGO SHORTS

YOU are what is wrong with running.

You’re probably laughing and thinking “ha this must be a joke, surely nobody runs in cargo shorts!!?”. Oh my brothers, I wish this was true.  I have seen over 100 people running in cargo shorts, vibrams, and a polo this year.  Let’s put an end to this meow.

3.) Gatorlytes

NEVER EAT PLAIN. OMG HORRIBLE.

While incredibly useful for replacing electrolytes, this shit is horrible if you don’t mix it with enough liquid. Or if you’re lazy like us and just pour it in your mouth and chase with a little bit of water.

2.) Mom-Spandex Shorts

I just vomited on my keyboard.

This one’s a bit chauvinistic, but I am a young guy (well kinda young still), so don’t blame me blame the hormones. This is aimed at girls 18-30.  If you’re fit and skinny, you should wear 2.5-6″ at the most spandex for shorts.  Those 6+” pairs that go up to your bellybutton and halfway down your thigh make you look like a mom. Sorry.  (Anybody older than that just shouldn’t wear spandex shorts, go for the pants, moms)

There, that's better Alex.

1.) SKETCHERS RUNNING SHOES

Not even a poor shoeless Kenyan would accept these.

MEB! *facepalm*

Unless you’re Meb. K., don’t do it.  Absolutely nothing Sketchers makes is cool, unless you’re 6 and you like velcro shoes.
