Are you Married?

A marathon is like life with its ups and downs, but once you've done it you feel that you can do anything.

I was listening to the radio this morning about signs that a person is married...

Ok, literally they were talking about if you were in a scenario at a bar where you are trying to figure out if a gal is dating someone or if she is single...

Little tid bits of information that they had said to look upon are:

This really does not work because the fact that it can go either way. If a gal is single, sometimes they have more confidence and has nothing to lose, so they flirt more than the average gal.

If the gal is married, she may not flirt as much bePublish Postcause they might be reserved...so? There is no win or lose in this...

There demeanor:
If they are dressed up more they may be single, although this would be tough in an after work ordeal...very crazy! But if they don't take care of themselves than the "average gal" then they have a chance to being single.

OK...so how does this tie into running?

Well...I can tie anything really to running related activities. In this instance, RUNNERS and telling if they are married. YOU CAN NOT TELL!

Ok, so we as runners only see each other mainly in the running scene, now...this is super bad because you can not tell if a runner is married or single because they do not have their wedding ring on and they don't usually talk about their significant other! Runners usually separate themselves completely when they run. As we run, we basically talk about oneself or ask about how another person is doing...usually leaving our significant other aside...unless we have problems or issues...which we usually talk about or we "slip" and have something planned with a significant other.

Funny how things work...

I remember that JM and I were going to institute a running wedding band...this tells people that one is taken or single!

Your thoughts?

Wait, why would people take their wedding band off to run? I don't understand that. I'm not married, but I always wear my class ring, and I've never taken it off to run. A ring doesn't get in the way like a necklace or bracelet or earrings do...

I remember one time a few years back leading one of the long training runs, and chatting up a guy in the group...and then he has to go and mention a wife and kids!!

us single peeps need a sign to "stay away"!
