Just heard on Radio 4
"Runners run because they love running.
Joggers jog because they love cake."
Yay, I'm a runner! (I heard that too)
Yes, I heard that, too. Love it.
Not interested in cake so I must be a runner.
Ha, I have cake after my Friday run, sorry - jog.
I must be a runner AND a jogger, then, cos I like both!!!
Me too. Cake still my favourite I think. Baking and eating. Maybe I will become a runner one day...
Someone mentioned cake. Gimme gimme 🍰🎂🍮🍩🍪
I missed the running programme but on Today this morning they were talking about runner physiognomy and the ideal runner has long, very lean limbs apparently (think Mo). It's mostly genetics rather than training or dedication.....so bring on the cake
It wasn't a running programme it was the Museum of Curiosity. Genetics is always the difference between the elites and the rest of us. All the training in the world won't make you into Usain Bolt or Arnold Schwarzenegger but it will make you into the best you.
Oh, there is a running programme being trailed....
Just making cake excuses I guess
The running programme is on tomorrow morning on R4extra. 0900 I think.
Thanks, you are right! I, however, will be running at that time
Excellent quote "All the training in the world won't make you into Usain Bolt or Arnold Schwarzenegger but it will make you into the best you"
I'm with you! My genetics says small and square
Who has cake? Where is the cake? Someone is baking cake?
Jogger it is with some days of runner waking up in me
Bet ya most runners envy the joggers in that case!
I'd run for cake...🍰...😊
Me too! Bluebirdrunner 😄
I am a runner then...I don't like cake...😄
You don't like cake Oldfloss???????????
Nope.... nor chocolate.... nor ice cream...
Quality opium on the other hand...
Oh old floss how the mighty are shown to have feet of clay. I really thought Crystal meth was your bag. I could see you in Breaking Bad....
Sorry.... sadly... ( not really) all this is in jest).. a 75 mg aspirin, in a real emergency is the reality!
I like the thought of Oldfloss with an opium pipe...
well, if it was good enough for De Quincey...
I was thinking of Sherlock Holmes!
That was cocaine. Holmes was most scathing of opium.
But Dickens was not.. Blimey this running lark sets off some threads of posts!
Tintin had a few tokes on the pipe as I recall, both in Lotus Bleu and Cigars of the Pharaoh
Yep... I have.. expensive tastes too...
ok, now you're just talking crazy talk.
My daughter doesn't eat anything sweet like you Oldfloss - she doesn't take after me (I used to eat the cake in her party bags when she came back from a friend's birthday party!)
Yep. Although I do run *ahem, jog* for nuts...
Verging on TMI now.
What? Not enough boundaries?
I like the thought that at first I couldn't run for toffee but 5 months on I can jog for cake 🎂. And run for love ❤️. Plainly it's good to have the right goal. Thanks for reminder re prog.
joggers run at the red lights, runners stand looking annoyed
And squatters squat because? Answers on a postcard please...
They want to continue to be able to use the toilet independently long into their senior years.
As I suspected then, I'm a jogger. Although I wonder what the term is for someone that runs/jogs for their love of Bacardi ??
A free 'spirit' maybe 😜🥃🍷
Let me know then I will know what I am!
I'll gladly run Tuesday for a cheeseburger today.
I love the replies to this post, made me chuckle 😄 I am a jogger - only the other day I told my neighbour that one reason I run is so I can eat cake (and other nice treats!). Unfortunately my jogs don't often use up the calories taken in by eating the cake 😉
I'm a runner-jogger too, then.
But I also have discovered recently that triathletes triath because they like to have two breakfasts
Exactly like hobbits!
Just picturing the Brownley bros. with big furry feet😅...
I am not a big fan of cake and I wouldn't call myself a runner. I do like rhubarb and custard sweets.
I would call you a runner ju-ju💪x
I'm willing to run FOR cake. Not sure where that places me
Just a heads up there's about to be a piece on running on this programme. Says its a 5k in Sheffield -...
is going to be talking to a man who discovered running in his 5os, soon. It's on air now.
Hiya, I haven't run for 40yrs and have now completed the first run of week 4. I'm so proud of myself...
