Everyone’s an Addict

What’s your poison?

Looks tasty, I'll have a shot!

Looks tasty, I’ll have a shot!

Is it fast food? Romance Novels? Watching grass grow? Perhaps something harder? Alcohol? Cigarettes? Clown Porn?


It’s exercise.

The kind that you hate to give in to, you dread it, and then somewhere in the middle of it the dread washes away. The adrenaline rushes through your body reaching into your soul. The road beckons you to just go a little further. The wind swirls past you seeming to lure you around the corner. As you slow to a walk, they call to you, begging your return. And in a matter of moments, I am ready to turn around and begin again. Damn, it feels so good.

For some of you this may sound a trifle  addiction. Sure, I can wax poetic about it now, because right now I have it under control. Right now I am not exercising on my way to exercise. Right now I am not laying in bed thinking about my next workout. Right now I am not consumed. How long can I remain in the Right now?

Can you walk the line?

You know it isn’t a straight line, don’t you? The damn line is always moving trying to get me to fall off.

Damn line.  Don’t they know lines are infinitely straight? Who do they think they are?

  1. While the “addiction to exercise” may indeed be “poisonous”.. “Exercising in general, just trying to stay fit and trim, healthy, and just in overall good shape… IT WILL RITUALISTICALLY KILL YOU..!!” 🙂 http://mrcatsoe.wordpress.com
    Very nice read.. enjoyed it very much.

  2. Yes, there just is something about exercise that you both love and hate. When did it become such a dreaded word, I wonder? MMM, I think it was the day they said that it was good for you – there is something about that phrase that can turn you off of the most glorious of events, etc. How very childish we are at times, eh???
