  3. There are two sets of blue jeans in your closet: one size for training season and one for off season.

  5. You can name the exact distance from your home to every landmark in town.
  6. You're 40 and you have a nickname.
  7. You can eat 4,000 calories and still be negative calories for the day.
  8. You could throw away your t-shirt at the end of the day and still go an entire year without having to buy a new one.

  10. You get excited about getting older because of the extra time you get in Boston.
