    Technically, #1 is not a run-on because all the clauses are joined by some kind of conjunction. However, it's WAY too long and needs to be divided into at least two sentences.

    #2 is correct, even though it reads terribly!! It would be better with "The" at the beginning of the sentence and "a" in front of "regular."
