You know you have a running problem when...

Running buddy Shumit has a post here about the criterion for "running problem". Here are mine, for an entry into the club!!
  • Wake up at 4:15 AM every Sunday morning.
  • You look out specifically for runners' blogs
  • You think the only shoe worth buying for you is a running shoe
  • Drag a pal along to hunt for "The Complete Book of Running" by James Fixx all evening and night on the streets of London. [ This is after a long hunt in Chennai and repeated phone calls to the big book stores]
  • You buy choclate bars, only to have them before the early morning run
  • Download podcasts to listen to during the runs
  • The first thing you pack in your travel bag is the running shoe
  • You pull all your pals into running every week
  • Most of the e-mails in your inbox are about running
  • You stopped drinking on saturday nights because of the sunday morning runs
  • You think the "highest high" is listening to "High Hopes" by Pink Floyd after you hit the 1 hour mark, running
  • Wake up at 5:30 AM on a Sunday morning and feel miserable, since the run started at 4:50 am.
  • You think a heart rate monitor is one of the coolest gadgets!
  • You think running is a life changing experience
