8 Things Every Runner Is Tired Of Hearing

January 15, 2016 2 min read

One of the most fabulous things about being a runner is being part of a running community. Runners tend to accumulate other like-minded running friends. Those people who get it, those people who understand how hard you push and how worth it it all is. Unfortunately, there are also people out there who don't get it at all. Like, not even a little. If you are a regular runner, here are 8 things you may be sick and tired of hearing!

1. "How did your race go this weekend? Did you win?"

Non-runners have no idea that 99.9% of the time, running a race isn't about winning. It is about running a personal best. It is about setting a new goal and surpassing it. It can also be about having fun.

2. "I hate running. It is so boring!"

This is a common misconception. When you are running, you can listen to music or a podcast, get lost in your thoughts, chat with your running mates, keep your eye out for cute fellow runners, count your steps, and high-five strangers. How can that possibly be boring?

3. "That race cost how much?"

We already know it cost too much, you don't have to tell us! But hey, at least we got a cool t-shirt. inpost

4. "Running is bad for your knees."

This is another common statement. And yes, sometimes it is true that runners have sore knees. But stretching and foam rolling makes light work of that problem!

5. "What do you mean you can't go out Friday night?"

When you have a 6am Saturday run, your Friday nights are jam packed. You've got to curate your playlist, charge your watch, eat some pasta and hit the hay around 8pm. There isn't time to go out and party! [bctt tweet="8 Things Every Runner Is Tired Of Hearing"]

6. "But wouldn't you rather sleep in?"

Who wouldn't? But have you ever seen the sunrise while the world is waking all around you? It is the most unbelievable thing on the planet.

7. "Have you gone for a run today?"

Not yet.

8. "How many marathons have you done?"

Maybe the answer is dozens, maybe it is none. Marathons do not make you a runner. Getting up, lacing your shoes and pounding the pavement, makes you a runner. Are you a runner? What are you tired of hearing? Source: SELF

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
