I’m usually a half glass full type of gal, but when it comes to running, there are quite a few things that really get on my nerves! Here are a few of my running and racing pet peeves.
Running Pet Peeves
– When runners don’t acknowledge other runners
I’ve talked about this on my blog before but I hate when runners don’t acknowledge other runners. I also either wave, say hello or give a head nod/smile when I see other runners during my runs. Half of the time I get no acknowledgment back. Seriously, how hard is it to be kind?
– Snot rockets
No. Just no. This is so gross!
– When runners always ask about pace
When I first started running there was one woman at my local running store that would always ask people about their pace. It was super annoying because you could tell she just wanted to brag about how fast she was. It got to the point where I just avoided her every time I saw her. I think she eventually got the hint.
Racing Pet Peeves
– When races start late
We already have to wake up early, and in some cases, travel to the race. Also the later we start, the hotter it gets out there on the course. Also I just hate waiting in the corrals longer than I have too!
– When runners suddenly stop
I have no issue with stopping to walk during a race, I certainly do it. But I hate when runners just stop with no warning. One time I actually ran into someone that did this and I was sure to give her a piece of my mind. Luckily neither one of us were hurt.
– When runners run more than 2 people across
Not only is this just rude, but it’s also dangerous.
– When runners listen to their music without headphones
I’ve actually noticed this more this year and I’m still so confused by it. What on Earth would make someone do this? It’s super annoying and rude.
Tell me: What are some of your running/racing pet peeves?
