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?
