Action 418 - Become A Fan Boy.

I suppose I'm the last one to see that this has happened, but so be it.

Action 418 - Become A Fan Boy.

First, the definition:
A fanboy is someone who is extremely devoted to a very specific and often limited topic of interest. Fanboys may focus their attentions on comic books, television series, computing platforms, videogames, films, and a wide variety of other topics, and they are often extremely single-minded in their devotion. ~ WiseGeek

Second, my limited topic of interest. Running and fitness. These days, I can't get enough of it. I'm subscribing to magazines, buying books, "Liking" Facebook pages, and joining groups... all with a focus on health and fitness in general and running in particular.

I know I have to be careful that I don't go overboard and burn myself out, because that has been a problem for me in the past. But I'm already a year and a half into this obsession and it just keeps getting stronger.

My latest "must have" items? My digital subscription to Runner's World Magazine and my samples of Arnica Oil coming from Jeewin Paris. I'm reading about running and excited to try a new post-race massage oil to help with the lingering soreness.



Yep, I'm a Running Fan Boy. And I have no intention of changing any time soon.
