What Runners Are Really Thinking

August 18, 2015 2 min read

Think nobody else is thinking what you are during a run? Think again. Here are some common thoughts during running. There are multiple random thoughts while going for a run. Based on a study from “Think Aloud,” our thoughts are more related to running than off-topic thoughts. The study team had analyzed 18 hours of recordings from 10 different half-marathon and marathon athletes who chose to record their thoughts out loud during a 7+ mile run. The thoughts were broken into three separate categories. One: Forty percent of thoughts are related to distance and pace. “Come on, pick up the pace.” Or “How much further do I have?” Two: 32% of runners has thoughts about being in discomfort and pain. “What is that pain in my foot? Oh, just a rock.” There was also quite a bit of profanity. Three: 28% of the thoughts were related to the environment. “Please, no more stop signs or red lights.”   Mile One “Time to get sweaty,” "It’s such a beautiful day out today,” “You got this,” “Here we go! Run time!”   Mile Two “Aw. That puppy is so cute,” “Wow, so is his owner,” “Never mind, I see a wedding ring on the finger. Keep going.”   Mile Three “This running thing rocks,” “Oh no, a cramp. Ow, it feels like someone is stabbing my side!,” “Shorts are riding up and I forgot my Body Glide for my inner thighs. I will pay for it in the shower later, it is going to hurt so bad,” “Woohoo, Taylor Swift on shuffle. I will totally shake it off.”   Mile Four “ I so can’t wait to get home and eat a giant bowl of oatmeal,” “Maybe I will just get a crepe on the way home. Nutella isn’t too bad, right?,” “I totally want a bagel instead.”   Mile Five “I am finally done,” Running is amazing and everything is totally awesome,” “I am the champion,” “I am so going for a run tomorrow, possibly sign up for a race!” What do you think about when you go for a run?

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.


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.
