Salty Running might be a women-focused site, but man-oh-man, do we ever love men! They’re our friends and dads and husbands and sons, and they make especially good running companions for those women who train on the faster side. They give us little flutters in our hearts and make us roll our eyes, and best of all is when they make us laugh!
And nothing makes me laugh more than when a guy gets upset after I pass him. Oh, you boys and your silly egos!
Even the most non-competitive runner gets a little thrill when she passes someone. It’s not necessarily anything personal, of course; it’s just a natural response to feel a little positive energy. As someone who’s been passed many times myself, I don’t take it personally when someone passes me, but not everyone is so magnanimous. Especially when it comes to guys getting passed by us.
So today let’s talk about guys’ reactions to getting chicked!
We want to know what is the craziest, weirdest or funniest thing someone has done when you passed them (or attempted to pass them) in a race or a training run!
As always, we’ll share our own answers in the comments!
