If you do call yourself a runner, can you handle the truth?




From the Rage Archives

It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity. -- Dave Barry, humour columnist, Miami Herald

Subject: Coffee on the Run

Non-Runners order coffee like this:

"I'll have a triple Cafe Mocha, please with extra whipped cream and sprinkles" (with a line of 10 people behind them dying to get around them...just like when they start way up front in road races).

Real Runners order coffee like this:

"Gimme a 16 oz. house strong. No room."
