“Someone who is busier than you is running right now”

"Someone who is busier than you is running right now” is a running saying that has been printed on many images. The saying means that one is really never too busy to find time to run.

“Someone who is busier than you is running right now” appeared in print advertisements for Nike athletic apparel in August 2007.

10 April 2012, Instablogs (Shimla: Athena Information Solutions Pvt. Ltd.), “The 10 most compelling Nike print adverts responsible for its brand recognition”:
Nike ‘Gone to run’
8. Nike’s Gone Running Campaign

The campaign launched Nike’s apparel and was geared towards expounding women’s athletic aptitude and multitasking skills. The crux of the ad was girl power, women who took time to work on their bodies. Stating that women have an on-the-go mentality, but still halted their busy 9-5 schedule to don running clothes and pound the pavement. The Nike’s female footwear campaign has the essential Nike touch to make it appealing, a ‘gone running’ sign, a real time clock and a striking copy yelling ‘someone who is busier than you is running right now.’
