look up any word, like sex:
A runner is a person that runs. A runner will run in any kind of condition. Rain, below zero temperatures, hot and stifling humidity, A runner will put on his/her shoes and run, a poser will not run in these conditions. Runners can be seen in many parts of the country or city. A runners faces many hazards including but not limited to, people talking on cell phones, women hauling kids to school, women with kids on board, old folks that have bad vision, dogs, mountain lions, bears, unattentive drivers, lightening, dehydration, frostbite, sore muscles, fat people that hate skinny little runners, bandits, mental blocks, roots & disorentation.
Some of the positive things about being a runner are that you will be irrestiable to the opposite sex, you can eat all the time, you meet a lot of interesting people and running is inexpensive.
A true runner is always in one of four states: 1. thinking about the next run 2. thinking about the last run 3. running 4. talking about running.
