Have you ever gone a few days without running and you’re not sure how to handle? You start getting a little anxious to get back out there and it can’t happen soon enough. Welcome to the world of long-distance running.
It isn’t done intentionally. You meant to go running yesterday, but something came up. You couldn’t go today because of that one thing and tomorrow doesn’t seem likely either. So, your natural high starts to come down a little while your mood begins to sour and your answers become a tad bit “snippier.” You know that if you could just get in at least 3 miles (preferably longer) then everything would be alright and the world would continue to function normally.
It’s almost as if there is a word that hasn’t been created yet that will be all encompassing of the running experience. Perhaps libermazing (liberating + amazing).
Give it a try: describe running in one word. (word combinations highly suggested)
