I suggest seeking professional help, talk to your parents/gaurdians about it. A good idea is to keep a diary of how your feeling, really try and work out why your feeling this way. Hope this helps xox

One thing you might try is running BEFORE you eat. Exercising can stimulate your appetite. But you do have 2 be careful because everybody's always like "I'm so fat" and stuff when they're not. Thy're actually afraid 2 eat. So first thing to do look up one of the weight charts on the Internet (like the one below) and see what the weight range for your height is. Then try to keep your weight in that range or just under it. But if that doesn't work, please seek help from your parents or a doctor 'cause anorexia is serious

I agree with jackie, and to add onto what he has said is more information on anorexia, which is the FEAR of gaining weight, which is why they don't eat, or binge-purge after eating only a little. It is not something you can just go through, it can turn into a life-long struggle and can lead to death :

The DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, Volume 4) provides guidelines and criteria for mental disorders, for anorexia *IS* a mental disorder characterized by loss of appetite. In terms of mental eating disorders the DSM-IV provides diagnostic criteria for anorexia, bulimia and EDNOS (Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified). The criteria are as follows:

A. A refusal to maintain body weight at or above a minimally normal weight for age and height (e.g. weight loss leading to a maintenance of body weight less than 85% of that expected, or failure to make expected weight gain during period of growth, leading to body weight less than 85% of that expected).
-- There is nothing wrong with having weight and gaining weight, in fact, the body needs some fat to function normally and protect our internal organs, so if you're running constantly out of fear to gain weight 1. you should talk to an adult about this fear and 2. you shouldn't really be afraid to gain weight--

B. Intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat, even though underweight or normal weight.
--speaks for itself--

C. Disturbance in the way in which one's body weight or shape is experienced, undue influence of body weight or shape on self-evaluation, or denial of the seriousness of the current low body weight.
--having a distorted view of a specific part of one's body such as weight could be characterized by body dysmorphia, which frequently goes hand in hand with anorexia as it impacts your social life as well, don't be so critical on yourself --

And there is a connection between exercises and eating disorders. You see, overexercising is just as bad for your body and mind, especially if you haven't eaten beforehand. If you are at a normal weight or underweight, then there's no need to exercise both rigorously and frequently as you do, unless you are overweight, which as evident by your picture, you are not.

One way you can go about it is, not running every-time you eat, because that's not necessary...but choose about 3-4 days per week and run for about 30min. - 1 hour.(1) You also should really try to eat 3 meals a day and get in at least 1600 calories (2). If you aren't getting in enough calories and still exercising, that could be just as bad as binging/purging. Because exercise/running can also stimulate serotonin, a hormone in your body that gives you a feel-good feeling, and puts you in a positive mood, when you don't eat much and still exercise a lot you could be conditioning and teaching your mind that you can still feel good without eating. Which is dangerous, because your mind will be less likely to want to eat and more likely to want to exercise, for the feel-good feeling. That's why you will find people with anorexia may tend to exercise more, because exercise gives them a positive mood, and helps them avoid/distract them from feeling bad due to lack of nutrients and food that they put into their body (3). The reason it's good to have good eating habits is because the body is trained , nourished, and everything is sort of in an equilibrium state. Where you can eat, and exercise and still maintain an average/normal weight and good BMI.

So, if you want to run, you need to make some sacrificing.
(1) "Exercise is recognised as being important for physical and psychological well being. It is recommended that everyone takes part in exercise for at least 30 minutes three times a week. "

(2) "A woman aged 19 to 30 years needs between 2,000 and 2,400 calories daily. A woman aged 31 to 50 years needs 1,800 to 2,200 calories daily. Women over age 51 need 1,600 to 2,200 calories daily. Medline Plus advises women to eat a minimum of 1,200 calories per day to avoid nutritional deficiencies.

Yep, so, the point is to create a steady eating schedule and running schedule for yourself so that you're not missing out on one and overdoing the other, because that is still not a healthy thing. What I would personally recommend is :

Eat 3 times daily (with fruits and a salad as a snack)
Exercise 3 days/week for a total of 30 min. - 1 hour
Take multivitamins including ( Flaxseed, buckwheat, omega-3 fish oil, vitamin c , vitamin e, zinc , etc)

You love to run, there is nothing wrong with that.
You haven't been eating so nothing really wrong with that.
IF you exercise a lot and eat a lot that is normal because it causes your metabolism to speed up. Now i did have some friends in high school who were the opposite. They exercised all the time, but barely ate. That was just how their body made it. They weren't necessarily full all the time, but they ate enough to make them feel okay.
Now if you think you may go through anorexia, maybe you should try to re-evaluate things.
Look at your plate and say hey I am going to eat everything on this today, and just eat slowly and see when you feel full. If you have almost all the food left on your plate there might be an issue. If you have half of your food that is okay,and if all your food is gone that is even better.
It could also be possible that your body is changing to try and fit your lifestyle patterns. There were months where I could barely eat anything while I did figure skating, but when I ran track I ate like an elephant!
