13 Reasons Every Runner is a Jerk

Start of Race

Running has countless benefits — it’s good for your health, your heart, your stress levels and might even increase your lifespan. Too bad almost every runner is a massive jerk.

An estimated 7 million people participate in some form of running for exercise each year, which means, we’re surrounded by at least 7 million aholes who make the sport seem so damn obnoxious. That’s probably because it is obnoxious.

Here are thirteen reasons most runners are jerks. Don’t worry, they won’t be offended, they are out running and won’t have time to read this article.

They run through and around traffic and really don’t care about the rules of the road



In Traffic

They brag about losing toenails and bloody nipples are ACCEPTABLE




Running on crowded sidewalks is common as long as you don’t get in their way with your “walking”



City Street

Runners love to sticker brag how far they’ve run…ironically stuck to the back of their cars



Marathon Decal

The entire sport is based on being selfish and alone




When a race is over, every runner gets a medal. Medals. For everyone. Grown people with medals




Not EVERY runner can pull off running shorts but EVERY runner tries




The sport is so boring they need gimmicks to make it entertaining



The Colour Run Singapore

Don’t plan on runners doing anything on a weekend, they’ve got a race (or need to train for one)

Runners think other people care about their times. Even other people interested in running don’t care about their times



Runner Watch

They invite people to WATCH THEM RUN

Races shut down major streets for hours, but it’s cool, no one else was going anywhere today
