    I thought it would be fun to try and make a list of things that us runners do that your average none runner doesn't, so
    You know you are a runner when......
    
    1. You see a steep hill and something in your head says "I would love to try and run up that"
    
    2. You involuntarily nod to other runners (even if they are across a busy dual carriageway)
    
    3. Your washing pile has more running clothes in than going out gear
    
    4. You have been dropped off before your destination so you can "run the rest"
    
    Please add more folks!

    you look to see what races are on nearby when planning your holidays or work trips
    
    you find yourself planning new training routes in your head while sat in the cinema
    
    you know where all the public toilets are & when they're open so that you're never caught short on the weekend long runs
