    My bleeding nips

    I started using KT tape for that. I have a hairy chest so band-aids were too painful so I cut small squares of KT tape. Now my pet peeve is when I take my shirt off and walk around wit little red pasties :/

    I too have a hairy chest and sticking anything over my breasts scares me

    Tendonitis literally takes forever to heal. Forever 🥺

    Finding a mens' sports bro to give me the support I need.

    It's called a holster. Or a scabbard.

    I guess my peeve would be with other people on the trails. It's only happened a few times, but after I ran a while and stop and walk, I've had a few times where other walkers that saw me initially running say something like "are you too tired to run anymore?"
    I suppose they weren't trying to be rude, but why say something like that to anyone?
    On the flip side, after my last ACL surgery, I hit the paved trail a lot to practice the whole walking normally thing again, and was out walking in my ACL brace one day when one of the other walkers passed by me and said I was doing great and getting out and walking was a great thing for me to do. I thought that was sweet of him to be encouraging like that, especially at a time when I was pouting a lot for being sidelined from a lot of the stuff I wanted to be doing.

    Yesss this!but I hate the “words of encouragement “
    Like “good job keep going”
    Blah blah blah

    So a peeve is definitely that we're (runners) more prone to over-use injuries.

    This! Ankle tendonitis is ridiculous. I did 8 weeks of rest+icing+massage+stretches. Tried a super small 1/4mile walk. Nope, my ankle felt itchy on the inside of my skin. Trying another 8 weeks on Monday😔

    Try wearing an ankle compression sleeve when you exercise. Works wonders for me.

    My bleeding nips

    My daughter just ran a half a marathon a few weeks ago and she told me her male team mates were given bandaids to put on their nipples. I never knew this was a thing.

    I have a few.....people who let their dogs loose in a public Park area (with posted leash law signs). People who don't clean up after their dogs. Peeps who feel the need to walk shoulder to shoulder and take up the whole path, even when they see you coming. How hard is it to share the path?!?? Oh, and forgetting to start my watch.

    dog poo and pot holes. I hate having to constantly look a the ground when im running in a nice area just because someone is too good to pick up after their dog.

    Running itself is a peeve. Lol. I hate it. But it's necessary. So I love it.

    When spotify is just not playing the right songs! I kept skipping tracks yesterday because I just wasn't "feeling" any of them, and we all know that when the right song comes on towards the end of your run, it's magic.

    Mine is people that won’t acknowledge another runner. Or walker. A nod or wave isn’t hard to muster. (I’m not talking 30 people to wave at in 3 miles, but the 2-4 I cross paths with in 5 miles).

    Definitely, mean dogs or unleashed dogs. I was attacked by two dogs while running about 5 years ago, and it was a terrifying experience. I had to run and barricade myself behind someone's screen door, and the dogs would NOT go away. They kept aggressively barking at me. There was no way I could escape so I had to call the police.
    And just the other day, my fiance and I were running around our neighborhood (different neighborhood from the time I was bitten), and a pit bull approached us from around the corner. Luckily, he wasn't aggressive and the owner came around the corner a minute late, but come ON. Leash your d*** dogs. I understand they are so sweet and loving to you, but they don't know me so don't expect the same outcome with strangers. Some owners are so irresponsible.

    Ok, that felt good to vent. :D

    It’s one of the most natural activities for a human to do. My fellow homo sapien had you no idea that we are probably the top species for endurance on this planet?

    Ditto to the loose dogs...I've actually had people say "it's ok hes nice" as he is jumping on me and following me and nipping at my heals... it is crazy ...I dont care if he is nice...he is slowing down my time and is a tripping hazard on an already rocky steep trail.

    I'm not here to make friends. I find people who try to interact with me when working out aggravating.

    Oh my here we go!

    If you bike on a running trail please give me a heads up before you come flying past me. A quick "on your left!" is all I need and if I don't hear you because I've got my music too loud then that makes ME the *kitten*.

    Long runs sometimes require you bring water or gels, its great to be prepared but keep your friggin trash!

    If you are walking your dog clean up the poop!

    Realizing at mile marker 2 that you forgot to hit "Go" on the garmin.

    Best running advice I ever got "Never trust a fart after mile 5"

    I’m just asking for common courtesy. Not your life story. It’s a shame in a world full of ‘multitaskers’ we can’t acknowledge someone we make eye contact with.

    If a simple wave or nod destroys one’s solace... wow.

    Sorry. I’ll get my horse blinders on.

    (Don’t get riled folks. Don’t take it personal)

    Let’s just disagree. That’s ok too.

  • Eddie_IceEddie_Ice Posts: 115Member Member Posts: 115Member Member
    A simple wave or a nod to me is a recognition that we are both out here getting to our goals and a little extra motivation to keep running so if you want to wave and or nod at me as we pass feel free.
