Best Sticker Ever – 0.0 I Don’t Run

I was at the grocery store recently and saw the best sticker ever... "0.0   I Don't Run" {you can buy them by clicking on the above link} Total classic for the runner who has tried to train to complete a 1/2 or a full marathon but just hasn't.  Well, more classic for just the complete self admitted non runner! Humour, for me, is found in it because I am one of those athletes who has tried to train for a race and either got injured (shin splints), or simply just lost the mojo. I am in awe of those who do have the 13.1, 26.2, 70.3?, and so on stickers on their vehicles.  But I am in total AWE of this person who put the 0.0 sticker and just OWNS the hell out of not running. Simply put, … [Read more...]
