Catching the running bug.

I have heard this phrase a few times now and would like to list its effects.

  • Possible rapid weight loss
  • Often accompanied by blogging
  • Likely contagious to close friends and family
  • Increased sales of ice packs and spandex
  • Redefining of what one will or won't do (I remember telling a friend once that they would never see me run 5 miles for "fun".  My 25k last year was a blast.)
  • Desire to travel to see more places on foot.
This is not a completed list but just a random morning musing.  If you can think of more, post them in the comments.


  1. -Running WITH family and friends
    -Running for a special cause
    -Finisher medals!
    -Sweet tan lines from summer running :)
