Are you a true dirtbag runner?

If several of these sound like you, you are a dirtbag

We’re all for the runner’s lifestyle but it has to be said: some runners have a knack for collecting real nasty habits. Distance running is a sweaty, bloody and sometimes even snotty hobby. Yes, we can be repulsive but for most of us this state is temporary. For others… not so much. Within the running community exists a sub group: The Dirtbag. This clan is known for taking things to peak nasty. Most of you know exactly who you are. For the unaware souls out there, here’s a list to review.

If several of the below statements sound like you, you know you’re a true dirtbag:
