Pin Up Girl

You know you're a runner when you have a pile of race bib safety pins on your desk at work.

You also know you're a runner when you have race bib pins everywhere.

12 days to Cleveland. Taper tantrums in full swing. Stay back.

Yep. You can always count on a runner for a safety pin.

Not only do I have pins everywhere, but it's little groups of 4 connected pins.

I have a pile of them in my truck's drink holder - LOL

Don't remind me how a big fat FAIL I am at that one. Having to call the hotel desk for safety pins - pffffttttt!

WTF is wrong with me??!?!?

not only do I have them everywhere, but I also keep about 6 sets in my running bag--which I bring to every race. And yet, those 24 pins stay in there and I still take 4 more at every packet pick-up.

I always try remember to reuse the pins, but I don't. Taper well.

The worst is when you have bib pins everywhere except the one time when you really need them.

Cleveland! Cleveland! Cleveland!

Is there a 5k or something you could run this weekend?

Sorry, that was cruel.

Rest.

Nitmos-- Is there a 5k or something you could run this weekend?
I'm going to be in Ohio, and a quick look at RunOhio.com's race calendar yields a veritable cornucopia of 5K possibilities...but no! NO! I must respect the taper.

Come to beautiful Findlay and be my sub 22 pacer at the Docs-n-Socs 5k. Lord knows, I can use the help.

you mean you have a race or something like that coming up? what's a taper?

Make Cleveland your Beeyotch!

I believe a Taper is a land-dwelling mammal, similar to an anteater.
