“If you see me running, call the police”

"If you see me running, call the police” is a jocular statement by a non-runner that has been printed on many ecards. “Mon, if you ever see me running, please call the Police, it means someone is chasing me ok?” was cited in June 2010.

“If you see me running, call the police” was popularized in July 2011 by this ecard.

Figuratively speaking of course, if I actually ran I would either
a.) have a heart attack
b.) expire
c.) have a heart attack then expire
Also, as anyone who has known me for a while knows: If you see me running – call the police – because someone is chasing me.

Friday Fiver: Things I Can’t Do (Yet)

I have often been heard saying, “If you see me running, call the police because I am being chased.” Cancel that emergency call.  I have (slowly) started the Couch to 5K running program in hopes of running my first 5K this fall.

If You See Me Running, Call the Police
A few days on Pinterest, this was a funny little blurb I tagged. And if you know me, you’d know why: I don’t exercise. As in don’t.

I do only exercises I enjoy. I don’t enjoy running, so I don’t do it. I attempted it for six months and discovered it wasn’t for me. If you see me running, call the police, because someone is chasing me.

Running is Not For Me.
I have come to the conclusion that I am not a runner. Matter of fact:

If You See Me Running, Call the Police!

Yep, I will not be running unless there is someone chasing me, a fire or some other huge emergency.
