Running is like drinking...

Running is like alcohol.  The first gulp is always exciting, fearful, and sometimes obnoxious.   One tends to have hang overs, especially if it is hard... both running and liquor... especially not knowing how much to take...
Then there is a phase, you start liking and then fall into a rhythm...and enter a new buddy community...
Typically the next phase is a hate- phase, tend to face a burn- out situation...
it is after this burn out situation, we have become a chronic runohalic or alcoholic..
Injuries / hang overs are due to improper usage of the habit...
So, simply... an addiction is an addiction... now I am a RUNAHOLIC...
I talk to my shoes... talk about running in office... trying to perk up people to run... 'why?'they ask, 'why not? 'I retort...' I believe I would convert few people around to run... in a sense feeling like a religious missionary... and spread the addiction....

The run is on...
