Having a running addiction is not necessarily a bad thing. It can be good when it helps you lose weight and be a healthy person. You should be careful, though, that it doesn’t become something that exhausts your body and eventually causes injuries. Running is just a part of your life; it is not your entire existence.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I WISH I were addicted to running, or even obsessed about it....or fond of it....or partial to it....aww hell, I hate running. Thing about running that I hate is that I don't feel comfortable exercising on my own, none of my friends show any interest in starting something sporty so I'm left getting old and inflexible as we speak (literally, I am reclining on a couch).

i love running but i am slow and hard to get motivted!

I think i acutualy am addicted to running. i run everyday and on days i dont run i get dizzy and dont have as much energy as i do on days i run. get this, my legs actualy hurt from not running when i dont run,and as soon as i start running again it the pain goes away. during school its all i think about out side of class, and im constantly saying i wanta run. I tried basketball in 8th grade, i was realy good at it, but they didnt run alot and after a day i missed running and felt like id go insane. some how i surrvived 2 weeks of that and quit basketball and joined indoor track. I loved it. so ya i think im am addicted to running
