It is replacing one addiction with another.

I ran cross-country in High School and quickly became addicted to running and that life style. It seems like a good thing but it was killing me on many levels. Many of my relationships fell apart because I spent more time out running than doing almost anything else.

Thankfully, I was able to slow and eventually stop this horrid addiction through the use of alcohol. I now make it a point to drink when I feel the urge to do any type of exercise....I am a much better person for it.

Ennuipoet: If you've ever seen someone who has just hit on the wrong girl with her biker boyfriend in the bar, you would know that many current drunks make unstoppable runners too!  Hell, put three or four big dudes wanting to crush my drunk ass on my tail and watch me do a three minute mile.


Was her name Linda Lu?

Expolaris: Elzar: alone

I love that alone time. I lead a very busy life with a lot of people who enjoy having me in it - that being said my few hours a week out running with my dog is my time, well our time.

My little Chocolate Lab / Pit Bull mix loves those 2 - 3 mile runs , any more than that and she just sits down and gives me the "Dad, I'm done with this." look.

She's been my running partner since i stopped abusing myself with fast food, pizza and endless oceans of chemicals (alcohol or otherwise) that was killing me. I'm not a marathoner yet (i'm catching up to my brother...he just finished his first Iron Man) - just a fitness runner who really loves getting out with his puppy for a quiet moment in my head. It's certainly a lot more peaceful in here since i started doing this.


So.... you're a "dad" with tits

Why be a runner when there's renewal?

I was formerly drunk (last night) and running sounds like the last thing I want to do right now.

I drink because I find most people to be unbearable - PARTICULARLY runners.

The Irresponsible Captain: "They could at least encourage something useful for the new addiction, like categorizing insects or lichens at a museum."

Those are things that even sober people get drunk to do.
