20 More Things Worse Than a Bad Run


No one likes a bad run. Least of all myself. You may remember last year when I put together my first list of things worse than a bad run, in fact.

Just to make sure you haven’t lost perspective, here’s another list I made — next time you have a bad run, just check these off in your mind and think again whether it was really as bad as you thought. 🙂

  1. Folding laundry
  2. Deciding what’s for dinner
  3. Watching the same episode of Sesame Street for the 63rd time
  4. Parallel parking quickly
  5. Going on a blind date
  6. Giving or receiving performance appraisals
  7. A dry wedding
  8. Teaching a teenager to drive
  9. Conversations about religion
  10. Conversations about politics
  11. Parent teacher meetings
  12. Having a root canal
  13. Handling an insurance claim
  14. Unpacking a suitcase
  15. Listening to elevator music on hold
  16. Cleaning the litter box
  17. Grocery shopping with a toddler
  18. Audits
  19. Doing the dishes after Thanksgiving
  20. Being injured and not running
