Listen it’s great to be focused on a goal. Driven to show up for every tempo run, hit your track paces and oh yes work those hips…but running just isn’t that serious!
99% of us are not going pro, we chose this sport because it offered us something more.
Time to think.
Today let’s giggle our way through some funny running quotes and funny running meme’s…keep them in mind to make you smile during that next hard effort. Science shows that smiling really will reduce your perceived effort!
One of the most popular funny running quotes is “if you see me collapse, pause my Garmin“. Which made me wonder, what other things are out there that I haven’t yet seen because I need to ASAP.
Turns out there are a lot of funny running meme’s, quotes take some digging to come up with, partially because people still like to call it jogging.
“Jogging is very beneficial. It’s good for your legs and your feet. It’s also very good for the ground. It makes it feel needed.” ―
Running a marathon takes balls, other sports just play with them.
“My doctor told me that jogging could add years to my life. I think he was right. I feel ten years older already.”
Our sport is your sports punishment.
Oh man who doesn’t feel that one!!! I mean it’s why I didn’t like running for a long time…still now it’s funny.
“Don’t be a jogger, they’re the one’s who find dead bodies.” – Amanda Brooks, yours truly.
No one ever drowned in sweat.
Logically true, but I’m pretty sure I’ve tried on a number of marathon runs in Miami.
“There are many challenges to long distance running, but one of the greatest is the question of where to put one’s house keys.”
I run because punching people is frowned upon.
A classic really. And true. Some people don’t have the guts for distance racing. The polite term for them is sprinters.
“The trouble with jogging is that, by the time you realize you’re not in shape for it, it’s too far to walk back.”
I’ve got 99 problems, so I went on a run to ignore them all.
Marshall Brickman“Laughter is inner jogging.”
Good things come slow – especially in distance running.
Run like hell and get the agony over with.
“Oh yes I will work out today. I will work out a way to avoid running for a stupid cause.”
Stanley from The Office
Running is not a hobby, it’s a post apocalyptic skill.
“When I see them all running like that, with their things bouncing around in their shorts, I always picture them naked, even if I don’t want to. All i see is pork swords.”
They say good things take time, that’s why I run slow.
I’m horizontal running!! A genius move from Pitch Perfect.
Kevin Hart on what makes running funny: watching other people (he’s right…I assume people laugh at me).
“I would talk about the different running strides that you see. That makes me laugh. You have the ultimate runner whose stride is almost the stride of a gazelle—it’s so fluid. Like wow, look at that guy’s stride, look at the woman’s stride. Then you have the non-breather—the person that can’t breathe [does a breathing demonstration]. Then you have the run-walker who thinks they’re running, but it’s just walking at a fast pace. That’s what makes me laugh.”
A few of the other common pithy running quotes…debatable if all remain funny:
- It’s a hill. Get over it.
- This is a lot of work for a free banana.
- Run? I thought they said rum!
- Slow runners make faster runners look good. You’re Welcome.
- If you can read this, I’m not last.
- You’re pace or mine?
- I plan on having such an epic run, Morgan Freeman should narrate it.
- Running sucks….the evil from my soul
- If found on the ground, please drag over the finish line
- Running late is my cardio
- Any idiot can run, it takes as special kind of idiot to run a marathon
- If you’re running with me, be prepared to walk
Have a great quote that I’ve missed? Let me know!!!
