Mostly Wordless Wednesday

Signs that 2 runners live here…

shoes, shoes and more shoes

**to clarify, these are all in current circulation!**
more running jackets in the front closet than non-running jackets
a perpetual laundry cycle
reading material of choice
more literature
the “running cupboard” (we’re low on Gu!)
water bottles galore 
drawers upon drawers filled with running gear
(does anybody actually fold this stuff?)

countless drawstring bags (race freebies)

shoeboxes everywhere 
shoeboxes used for storage
various paraphernalia in the washroom
and of course the wall of fame
ο»ΏWhat are some of the signs that a runner(s) lives at your house?

  1. Okay, time for tough love, recycle, reuse!!Donate those excess shoes to the RR, they will pass them on to peeps who can use them….shoe boxes ~ recycleold running clothes ~ recyclerace bags ~ recycleLOL….now, time to go buy more GU!!!

  2. I have SOO many old shoe boxes lying around and I can't get rid of them! They are perfect for storage! Plus I have so many old shoes lying around too!!

  3. This made me laugh; I was just taking some pictures of my 32 pairs of Nike Tempo shorts and thought I should post something about how much running stuff I had around the house :). At least your stuff is VERY organized!!! πŸ™‚

  4. I love this and that you buy epsom salts in the huge container as well….we also have a bag of frozen peas never eaten, only used to ice body parts.

  5. Look at all those medals!!! My husband is constantly complaining about my "running crap" all over the house . . . I say the same thing about his "ice fishing crap!" πŸ™‚

  6. HOLY SHOES!!! haha, WHOA guys. I usually get rid of my old ones, and move on?? Am I alone in this?! πŸ˜‰ This post is awesome! Signs that a runner & cyclist live in our place: water battles GALORE (D hoards them), Accelerade & Nuun in mass quantities, laundry cycles (ugh), and crazy drawers….nope, we don't fold it either. πŸ˜‰

  7. Yay for a runners household! πŸ™‚ I love the special running cupboard filled with gu. That is awesome! I think a sign that a runner lives at my house is the fact that I am always doing laundry and hang dry all my wicking clothes. So there are clothes hanging from every where always. This post made me smile! πŸ™‚ And I don't even live with J. Alabama yet but when I do, I can't even imagine how bad it will.

  8. Love it. Looks quite a bit like my house, too. I knew a guy who was a triathlete and he used his dining room table as his "transition" area when doing bricks. Quite a funny sight!

  9. HAHA! My house looks like this! I have a drawer in the kitchen (like someone else mentioned) dedicated specifically for GU and energy bars. It makes me stop and wonder, "Has this taken over my life to the point of being obsessive?" NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! πŸ˜‰

  10. Two items define our running house:TONS of towels from the gym after I wrap up my stinky wet clothes and stick them in my gym bag to bring them home to wash.I CANNOT open my running drawer without a few cuss words b/c there is just no room for the clothes in there.

  11. Love this post. I keep waiting for my hubby to get more serious about running. I think I'm out of luck, he is into his hunting stuff way to much to dedicate time and money to running…. so i'll do it for the pair of us. teehee

  12. I love this post. You come up with some really fun ones. I have a little "trophy" table! I usually have the recent medals hanging on the fridge. The calendars are running calendars. And more…….

  13. Yup looks like my house! I fold my running clothes… my hubby doesn't fold his though! How many pairs of shoes do you have in circulation? I have 2 pairs, but it looks like you have wayyy more than that!!I think my running wardrobe cost more than my regular wardrobe!

  14. I fold my running clothes and I toss out shoe boxes as quickly as I can. My closet: this summer, I'm getting rid of clothes that just hang and putting my running gear on hangers. It's the athletic wear that I use all of the time.

  15. Ok. Goodwill some of those drawstring bags. Haha. Oh man I would be stressed with all those running clothes. For some reason I feel like I have too much and you have WAY more than me. Haha. I'm weird I know. I fold my running clothes but they inevitably end up in sloppy piles on their shelves.

  16. My "fitness drawer" can't actually hold all the workout clothes I own, but it's okay, since half of them are in the laundry bin, pretty much always. There's never a time when every article of workout wear is clean in our house. Which probably means we should do more laundry.

  17. Love, love this post. It was cracking me up with the shoe boxs because I have the same thing, the laundry basket of smelly running clothes and running magazines…So funny, but very serious at the same time.You are so much fun!

  18. I've got shoes, medals, bibs and assorted running clothing in random areas throughout my living space. Packing all of it up and moving it once Mark and I find a place to live will not be fun.
