Unless you’ve been out running and have a life, you might have read this article from the Wall Street Journal entitled, “Okay, You’re a Runner. Get Over It.”
You don’t have to go read it - I will sum it up for you in a few basic points:
- Runners put 13.1 and 26.2 stickers on their cars to show off
- Runners run to show off
- Running is growing in popularity
- Runners post their accomplishments via social media to show off
- Runners wear clothes/gear related to running to show off
Common theme = runners like to show off. So very deep and insightful, no?
I took a break from showing off to write the author a little letter.
What are your thoughts? Are we just an over-indulgent bunch of braggarts?
Do you have a sticker on your car? Do you post workouts on social media? I don’t do either, but I do have a blog where I brag plenty.
