The weather is starting to warm up in Wisconsin and you know what that means . . . it’s finally time to ditch the treadmill and head outside for workouts!
But we can all agree running outside isn’t always as smooth sailing. Here are 22 hilarious truths we can all relate to once we lace up those sneakers and head outside for a run . . .
You skipped hitting the snooze button, you did your stretches, you’re ready to go . . .
Then you step outside and it feels like Antarctica. You better put on more layers . . .
And you’re off!
A few minutes in and you’re feeling pretty fantastic about this . . .
Oh look, a puppy! He looks friendly. I must meet this pooch!
Okay back to running.
Now your mind starts going, “I should get a dog. I mean, I love the idea of dogs! I think a dog would really make me happy. But would I be home enough to take care of it? What kind would I want? I think I would want a boy dog. No, a girl! Wait, I’m allergic to dogs. Okay no dog.”
“Oh boy. Another runner. Should I smile? I should smile. I’m going to smile.”
“Aaaand they didn’t smile back.”
“Okay I’m sweating. Like a lot. Is it normal to sweat this much? Oh my gosh it’s dripping, IT’S DRIPPING!”
Even though your corneas are literally burning from the sweat bombs pouring from your forehead, you find your inner strength and keep going!
EURIKA! You’ve finally hit that second wind.
And then you see the giant hill 30-feet in front of you.
And you start questioning why you went this route in the first place . . .
But you find that inner strength again, and make it happen!
You make it to the top and your legs start feeling a little . . .
But a car is coming and you can’t look weak. Must run faster!
“Okay, only a few more blocks. I can do this.”
You finally end your run and you’re walking back to your front door . . .
But then you look at your fit tracker and realize you burned off the pizza and ice-cream binge from last night . . . and it’s all worth it.
