7 New Running Words Made By Runners For Runners

With words like fartlek to supination, it’s not surprising that people who don’t run think that we speak a crazy made up language all our own. I often find myself struggling to find the perfect word for how beat up, tired, or hungry I feel before, during or after a run. And since we already have dozens of official (and bizarre) running terms, I thought why not add some more! Here are 7 brand new words made by runners for runners.

1. RUNGER

RUNGER

2. RUNCH

RUNCH

3. RUNKLES

RUNKLES

4. RUN-NY

runny

5. RUNHOLE

RUNHOLE TWITTER

6. RUNVIOUS

RUNVIOUS

7. RUNFIE

runfie

Now who do I have to talk to about getting runhole and runfie into the Oxford English Dictionary? Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.

Run Selfie Repeat

My name is Kelly Roberts, and I'm the former president of the "I Hate Running Club." No—but really. While struggling to grieve the loss of my brother and maintain a healthy body weight (after losing more than 75 pounds), I thought, "What better way to run from my problems than to actually run from my problems?" Since those painful first runs, I've conquered everything from marathons to 5Ks and haven't looked back. I created my blog, RunSelfieRepeat.com, to inspire others to get active while making them laugh hysterically—because laughing, in my opinion, is the solution to everything. You can find me on Twitter and Instagram (mostly eating cheese burgers, taking selfies with handsome men and terrorizing my sister) @KellyKKRoberts or on my YouTube channel!
