I eat whole foods, correct portions, drink nothing but water.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong...

I've always been a larger build, I just don't understand how running affects me completely different than everyone else.

are you running distance or sprinting?

I was a sprinter and have thicker thighs but i'm also doing alot of leg based exercises and do a sport that requires lots of kicking.

Maybe its a case that your legs weren't very muscular to begin with and now they are packing it on. If you continue to run alot eventually your legs will start to thin out. Distance runners tend to burn muscle as they run so it keeps everything nice and thin instead of thick. It's also a difference of fast twitch and slow twitch muscles.

my legs have always been gigantic and muscular, it just seems they're getting bigger now

I just try to run slow, for distance, I know that sprinting burns more calories though, this is confusing...

Also girls with thicker more defined legs are way more attractive than stick thin ones. And muscular thighs usually run right into a nice butt.

I'm just tired of my thighs rubbing together, even when I was at my lowest body fat percentage and weighed a sickly 130.

Sprinting definitely burns more calories because the workload is harder but at the same time is short enough not to burn off the muscle as well.

Serious runners are running 5-10 miles a day or even more and are sometimes just genetically thinner. It seems to take alot longer to get stick thin than just toned.

If you are doing any sort of lifting you are really hurting your chances of getting into runners shape. Most lifting affects fast twitch muscle fibers which is good for bulking and toning. Slow twitch which is essentially used to keep you going for awhile is developed by hours and hours and miles and miles of running.

Personally stay "thicker". I never got why women wanted to be bone thin. That does not look attractive at all.
