Pick Up Lines for Runners

Just in time for Valentine's Day:  I've had a few runner friends met their significant others while running.  I wonder if they still would have ended up together if they used some of these ice breakers.  



  • 1. Dang it! My coach told me not to get my heart rate over 160 today but then I saw you!
  • 2. What’s your PR? If you go out with me, you will be mine!
  • 3. You can stop chasing your dreams. I am right here.
  • 4. Was that an earthquake or are you rocking this run?
  • 5. You run like DSL. How can I get high-speed access?
  • 6. Roses are red, violets are blue, would you mind if I ran with you?
  • 7. Do you know karate? ‘Cause you have a great finishing kick!
  • 8. (At the end of a race) I am like chocolate pudding. I look like crap but I am sweet as can be!
  • 9. I hope there’s a fireman around, ’cause you’re smokin’ fast!
  • 10. Apart from being a running gear model, what do you do for a living?
  • 11. I am not sure if it was this run or you that just took my breath away.
  • 12. You run faster than my nose in allergy season!
  • 13. Since distance equals velocity times time, let’s let velocity or time approach infinity, because I want to run all the way with you. (For the nerdy runner.)
  • 14. My love for you is like an ultra-marathon. It goes on and on.
  • 15. Your voice is so beautiful, you make fartleks sound appealing.
  • 16. When it comes to love I am in it for the long run. Want to join me?
  • 17. On a scale of 1 -10 you are a 26.2!
  • 18. When I log my run in my journal today, it will say I ran 10 miles with my future wife/husband.
  • 19. My name is Garmin. Will you take me running every day?
  • 20. Excuse me… Do these shorts make me look fast?

LOL...LOL...so hopefully I'll hear one of those lines one day. TOO FUNNY! And the Garmin badge on your sidebar, I'm hysterically laughing! Thanks Jon...really needed this lift up.

Congrats on the Shockers win!

Nelly said...

Congrats on the sweet 16! You don't know how excited I was to see Gonzaga lose - first because I went to Santa Clara (their arch rival), and Gonzaga upset Stanford in 1999 when Stanford was a 1 seed and the Zags were a 9 seed. Now they know how it feels to be favored and lose!

Nelly said...

Congrats on the elite 8! You guys have a very good team, I now see how you beat Gonzaga by raining 3s - and you have a good inside game with Garland - that guy is impressive. Ohio State will be tough, I think it will go 2 points either way. Ohio State is good defensively, but you guys might have the edge on offense and 3 point range. The win might hinge on whether you can hit your 3s again.

Nelly said...

Final 4! Congrats! Why did it seem like the announcers were going for Ohio State the whole time? In the 2nd half Wichita State took the gas off a bit, but they still were leading the entire 2nd half, and Ohio State only got within 3 I think. Nice to see a big school like that go down. Shockers!

Nelly said...

Awesome to hear that Wichita has exploded with support! Yea, Louisville is legit, especially on defense. I love watching the full court press. Before the tourney started, they were my pick to win the tourney simply because of their defense. Though in my bracket I picked Florida since I was formula a site/formula for picks. I only got 1 final 4 team right (Louisville), Ohio State was also one of my picks lol. Good luck to Wichita State, hope they Shock them lol

Nelly said...

Also, that Louisville injury was one of the worst I've ever seen - brought back memories of Bryant Young of the 49ers breaking his leg in 1997, or Thiesmann breaking it in the late 80s. They showed it on replay once, and I'm glad they didn't show it more than that. Ugly.

Nelly said...

SHOCK the world!

Nelly said...

Good game, just a bummer on how it ended with that held ball call. That was garbage. Great season Wichita State - you guys almost had it today.

Nelly said...

Yea it seemed like you guys had it when you were up 12. Louisville then seemed to up the full court pressure, and started driving to the basket and getting 3s. You should be proud of the team.

On that held ball at the end- in Stanford's only final 4 appearance in 98, they lost by 1 in OT to Kentucky. At the end I remember there was a held ball that ended the game for Stanford. Eerily similar to today.

Insist to take exercise. Happy every day.

Dorothy Davis said...

Thanks for sharing these beautiful and inspiring pick up lines for runner. Thumbs up!

Nelly said...

Yea, Marcus Smart looks simply out of control this year. He is just dominating. Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins and Randle also look good.

Stanford needs to make the NCAA tourney this year, or else they need to fire the coach and start over. Apparently we got a really good recruiting class for next year. Though with how into football I am, I stopped going to basketball games this year.

Hey there John,
How are you? No postings for forever so wondering if you are still running at all and doing ok.
