You might be a runner if... the 'other woman' is a secret 10 mile loop you discovered.

Other favorites win a Running in the USA t-shirt:
...you miss Will Chamberlain. (owner of Classic Race Services in Athens, GA, who passed away recently)
...the nurse at your OB appointment takes your pulse numerous times, worried that you are bradycardic.
...you've thought of ways to sneak out of work for a quick run without anyone noticing.
...you compare your resting heartrate with other runners.
...you see every season as good running weather or a challenge to run in it.
