If You’re Warming Up, I’m Mocking You.
As we were creeping around to find a parking space at a recent neighborhood 5K, I couldn’t help but roll my eyes at over-anxious go-getters who were already out “warming up” for the event. Look, I get it, runners come in a huge variety of ability and intensity levels, but with a few exceptions, you do not need to warm up before a short neighborhood race.
And let’s be honest. If it’s a marathon or half marathon, let’s just consider the first coupla miles your warmup. Aight? Aight.
Unless you are actually in contention for prize money (or if it is frigid at the start line, and you’re literally trying to warm up), I’m going to need for you to calm the eff down and stop taking yourself so seriously. — Aidz
