I to like Mindy have a addiction to running. Call me crazy, but I love it.  I first became a addict when in high school. I ran track and cross country, and loved it from the start. 
It's an addiction when you keep running even though you have blisters, when you go to the mall and the first store you go to is Lady Foot Locker or the running store down the street just to see if they have anything new, when you have 6 or 7  of shoes you never wear but don't want to get rid of them, when you want to run more marathons just to see if you can beat your time, when you add a mile to your run every week just to see if you can go farther, and you wake up at 4:30 just to get in a run.
This photo is of my newer pair of shoes and with my two running bibs from my half marathon, and my full marathon. I ran a vivid action in elements and turned off all the layers but the urban layer. Taken in manual mode, ISO: 200 F:4.8  Shutter 1/4

wow, I like your shoes!! You can really see a lot of detail in this shot. I think your marathon bibs was a nice touch to the picture. The coloring is great!

Great job, LeAnn! Your addiction is a lot more serious than mine... maybe you need help. ;) (I haven't run a full marathon yet, just a half... but I have gotten up at 4:30 before for a run, but not often. :)

Wow... I don't think anything short of a house fire or a sick child would get me up at 4:30 in the morning. Certainly not something like that that requires serious effort. I admire you dedication... addiction and I wish God had given me one.

Love the colors in your pic. Love how you filled the frame. Excellent job!!!
