The 10-minute rule applies to Karen Kunz's Tuesday-Thursday morning running group in Sacramento. Sure, the women who work out with her on a dirt track in Sacramento, California, are supposed to start at 5:30 a.m. But their running joke is they wait around until 5:40--usually because their leader hasn't shown up yet. "I'm not always known to be the most prompt," Kunz says.
"Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait, wait. I worry that what you just heard was 'give me a lot of bacon and eggs'. What I said was, 'give me all the bacon and eggs you have'. Do you understand?"
