Yes, if you look at my spark teams, I belong to 2 running related groups. However, I am not a runner. I am doing the C25K training (in week 8) and I am planning on running in my first 5K in June. For me, and this is only for me, not making judgements for anyone else, I am not a runner. To me, being a runner is a mindset. It isn't simply a statement that if you run, you are a runner. Being a runner is someone who puts thoughts and plans into their training. It's spiritual. It is not that for me. I am fairly certain I will never be one of those people. For me, it's just another way to get cardio in. And people are very supportive if you say you are going to do a 5K.
Today, I got blind-sided by a co-worker who is a runner. She placed a large stack of running magazine on my already rather cluttered desk. She gave helpful advice that all started with, "You HAVE to..." That method doesn't work for me. Ever.
So tomorrow, I am seriously considering putting a sign on my cubicle wall.
