1. The "I Don't Wanna, I Don't Wanna" Run

Maybe you have a training schedule to stick to, or maybe you're just way more tired than you thought. Either way, you are just NOT. FEELING. IT. But hey, give yourself bonus points for going for it anyway! It will all be over soon.

2. The Angry Run

3. The "This Really Chafes" Run

Nipples, inner thighs, under arms, the neckline. No matter where it happens, it is the worst thing in the world and lasts forever.

4. The "Why Am I Even Doing This?" Run

Known to some as The "What Am I Even Doing With My Life?" Run. When you're out there all alone with your thoughts, you're bound to do some (over)thinking. There will be many questions, but hopefully you find some answers.

5. The "Yep, I'm Definitely Lost" Run

Whether a new neighborhood or a random wrong turn, you suddenly realize you have no idea where the eff you are. No shame in slowing the pace as your retrace your steps.

6. The Deluge Run

You thought running in the rain would be refreshing and maybe a little badass. And it was! For like, five minutes.

7. The "Treadmills Are The Devil's Playthings" Run

9. The "I'm Going To Eat Whatever I Want After This" Run

Soon all your dreams of pizza and nachos will be realized, washed down with a well-earned recovery milkshake (it's like a protein shake, but with ice cream).
