In the past I got the bus to work and run home after work. Does that count?

I often run home from work (but it's only five miles).
I run after work 2 times a week. On a direct route its only 3.5 miles, but last week my run after work was 9.5m. I find the key to maintaining this is to have different routes (mine vary from 5 to 10 miles) and remember you aren't really running home, you are going for a run which just happens to finish at home.
Whilst training for the Devil o the Highlands i would take the train to a stop 20 miles from home, as the crow flies, but about 35 by the time i visited any points of interest along the way.
My thinking is, if its 20 miles to get home i have no choice but to run it, if i'm feeling good then i can make the route more interesting and extend the run. I take any oppertunity i can to run somewhere different as this keeps it interesting and me motivated.
Running is addictive...
When you're walking, and wonder what your pace per mile is.
When you climb 10 flights of stairs instead of taking the lift, to get your legs up to lactate threshold.
When you go on holiday to a hot country, you take your running gear because "It'll be good to get some hot weather training in."
When the only reason you're recognized in Halls is because "You're that runner dude."
When you become friends with people that you've only ever seen at races.
When the people at your local running shop recognize you on sight, because you're in there so often.
When this is your most commonly visited website
When you can easily convert km into miles and vice versa
When you encourage newbies to do a 5k because it's only 3 miles.
