Addiction: The state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically orphysically habit-forming, asnarcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.
Hello, my name is Christina and I might be addicted to RUN.
Finally, I decided to just take it easy. I know how to take it easy. I'll just walk A LOT and run some and when I am done, I am done. I played Ken Burns' Prohibition (disc 1) on my lap top while I ran.
First mile went well. The second one went well. The third one went well ....
I stopped at every half a mile to take a sip or two of water. At mile 5, I took a Jet Blackberry Gu gel. Sometimes, I stopped to stretch. Sometimes, I slowed to a walk. Sometimes, I hit the bathroom. Eventually, I hit the nine that was on schedule and thought, I can do another mile. All 10 miles on the treadmill. And I loved it. Addicted? I am not sure. But let me just say, while my stomach is still feeling funny, I am feeling wonderful - like I am lifted.
The sight of this brings a smile to my face.
