Is Running Considered a Hobby?

When I first read this article at zenhabits about commitments, I was surprised that he classified running as a hobby. I’ve never thought of my running as a hobby.
But after reading these online definitions:

  • a spare-time recreational pursuit.
  • an activity pursued for pleasure or relaxation and not as a main occupation.
  • an interest engaged in primarily for pleasure.
  • something a person enjoys doing (usually frequently) in his/her spare time and not for pay.
I came to the conclusion...that for me, running is a hobby.
