How old are you? I'm 19 and my friends think running more than 20 laps is crazy lol. What do your friends about it?

Not on a regular basis, but since I don't usually have access to a track in the first place, the few times I DO, I could almost run a MARATHON on a track and not get bored...
I run a weekly 10 miler at 60 minutes and often do all of my marathon work on a track.
Prefer it to the road most days
I did my long run on a trendmail the other day 1hr 40 mins and I wasn't bored lol

I would LOVE to be able to run in a big open space like that. That would be so exciting. You should selfie video your next run so I can enjoy it while I am running on my tiny little 5 foot belt not really going anywhere watching a blank wall.
You could reverse direction.
I wouldn't want to do 10 miles because the constant turning in one direction wouldn't be great for my injury issues, but it's pretty standard for me to do a 5 mile tempo on the track. I don't get bored at all actually because it's a workout. If it was just an easy run then yeah, I'd be bored.
I used to do a 10-mile progression run on the track frequently to gauge my fitness. Think the fastest I ever got comfortably was in the 51 min range. But, unless I was running 400s or 800s, I really had no interest in being anywhere near the track.

Anyone else enjoy running around circles for longer distance and not get bored!?
I did a 20-miler on an indoor track once during a blizzard...and also 22 miles at 6:30 pace on a treadmill. there was a football game on so it was no problem

I love doing tempo work on the track. It's so easy to get into a rhythm. It also feels like you're jogging if you're used to only going to the track to do really hard speedwork.
I've even done long runs on indoor tracks, when there's a blizzard outside. I did 20 miles on a 200 meter flat track, and once I did 17 miles on a 130 meter (!) banked track underneath a stadium. It was sort of meditative.
