Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: What are your running pet peeves? You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
When it comes to running, there are quite a few things that really get on my nerves! Here are a few of my running pet peeves.
When runners don’t acknowledge other runners
Seriously, how hard is it to be kind? Yes, while you can’t smile to acknowledge other runners (due to face coverings), you can still wave or do a head nod. Especially with everything going on and everyone being so disconnected, why not show a little kindness to your fellow runners?!
This will forever be disgusting. I have allergies year-round but they are really bad in the Spring. Because of this, I always make sure that I run with a bunch of tissues because I often have to wipe my nose or my eyes. I’d rather run and be prepared for that instead of launching a snot rocket. Ugh – it grosses me out just thinking about it!
When runners debate over virtual races
With the uptick in virtual races, it seems like everyone has an opinion about them. Personally, if I got a PR during a virtual race, I wouldn’t count it, but that’s my decision. If someone wants to count it as a PR then that’s great! I don’t understand why some runners feel the need to force their unwarranted opinions on other runners – it’s annoying.
When races start late
This REALLY irritates me, especially if the race is supposed to start super early in the morning!
When runners listen to their music without headphones
I love music and I always run with music for training runs or races, but I always wear headphones. I think it’s disrespectful to listen to your music without headphones. If someone likes to run in silence, this can be very disruptive. Also, it’s just flat out rude!
