It may just be me....

and my OCD/addiction to this forum/ new found love of running.....but everytime I see someone running (even if I am driving by on my way to the store) I just want to holler.... RunningMania.com!!! at them..... anyone else experience this strange phenomenon? Or do I need to go back to my shrink?

nope....I'm with Angel on this one....far too much commitment....and I'm not a techno wizard...

I gotta get me some real running shoes first.....then maybe a hydration system....then some dry-fit....and maybe, if I am lucky...a watch....long before snazzy GPS systems.
