Obsessive Runner?

I love running!  I’m an obsessive runner!  And proudly so…

I run as often as I can.  When I travel I pack running gear and no matter the jet lag look forward to getting up before dawn to run in a new town or city.  I learn so much about a place by running along streets and through communities.

I run when I’m tired.  I slog the first minutes with heavy steps and ragged breathing but miraculously I always settle into a comfortable rhythm and more often than not have a great run.  I have a feeling of great satisfaction after finishing a run that started out rough.

I run when I’m sick. I think that the best way to fight a flu or cold is to go for a run using my own body’s heat to fight the infection.  No I haven’t reviewed this with my doctor so I don’t recommend it or know if it even works.  I know it makes me feel good though.

I dream about running.  Sometimes about past runs most often about the run I’m looking forward to when I wake up.  Dreaming about running also effectively puts me to sleep.

Yes, I’m an obsessive runner.  And I’m not alone…

Until next time…
