Once a runner always a runner

Once a runner always a runner. As far as I can tell, once the love of running hits, a runner will make it through any hardship to go out for a run.  A few aches and pains won’t deter a runner.  Weather not cooperating?  Never mind the rain, I was going to get wet anyway.
