Playing Cards for Running


Did you know that there are card decks for all sorts of topics? Yes, I have a few different card decks for Yoga. I have a couple for positive affirmations. Imagine my surprise, though, when I went looking for running card decks and came up empty.

Fairytales and Fitness

So I decided to just make a few running cards. Not a whole deck (maybe someday?), but just a few. Feel free to right click (PC) and save them if you want.

If you run, you’re a runner
Celebrate every finish line!
Find the good in every run/race
Smile! Your run will feel easier!
Will run for chocolate!


Running isn’t always serious!
It’s always good to put a little fun into our running — and into our days! If you had a whole deck, you could pick a card at random every day. Maybe we need a famous runner deck with short bios? That would actually be a fun project.

Do you have any fun decks of cards you use?

What quote would you like on a running card?

How do you put the fun in your running?

  1. Cute idea. Typo in first card BTW.

    My cards would say:
    Running is Better with Friends.
    Celebrate Finish lines not finish times.

    Taking nature pictures is fun for me. Running in new places. Leaving the watch off.

    If it’s not fun, don’t do it.

  2. I used to collect playing cards when I was kid — and play with them, so they didn’t have any value. Back in the day airlines used to give them away (at least to kids). So, I had multiple decks from many airlines, plus from places we visited. A deck of cards for runners would be fun — you have a great start.
