Confession Of A Running Addict
I had this shirt custom made over the independence day weekend and I have been wearing it ever since I made it. Without a doubt, I confess that I am a total running addict. After getting the Garmin and a brand new pair of shoes, there are several moments during a single day when I ask when and how long I’m going to run. There’s the feeling that if I don’t run, my day won’t be complete. Even a simple 5K run would do for me, as long as I get to opportunity to move my legs and propel myself to other places I’ve never been to.
It’s such a wonder what running does to your life. Not only do you lose weight in the process, but the distances are somehow relative near to you. Instead of driving a 5K on your car to a certain, why not run for it? Come back to your point of origin and you would have done a 10K already. There’s that certain viewpoint that gets stuck in your brain that when you want to get from point A to point B and you know that you can do it on foot, the best thing to come out of your mouth is, “kayang takbuhin ‘yan.” =)
But of course, running addicts need rest also. As much as I would like to run everyday (even a short distance every other day would suffice), my legs and feet need some time off as well. Too much of it and I’ll suffer a great loss – not only in terms of performance, but also in determination.
As Doc Iris has mentioned, it feels so good to be active. Case in point – an excess, violent rush of happy hormones after each running session. (Doc, you know what I mean by this one. Hehehe.)
Yeah, I’m glad I adopted running into my lifestyle. And there’s no way I can eradicate this from my system – it’s a vice that I must cater and heed to when I feel its calling. To run or not to run? Let rhetorics speak for itself. You know the answer. So join and adopt my addiction. BE A RUNNING ADDICT. Heaven knows that you will NOT regret your decision. =)
