Let me try to give a clearer, more serious answer. "Run" is not an
easy word to use. It has so many meanings. Let's stick to one of them, the one that is in your post.
A "run" is usually a sequence of things, something with a beginning and an end. If a movie or play remains in a theater for three weeks, it has had a "three week run". or a "run of three weeks". If you've had lots of bad luck over the past two years, you've had a "run of bad luck".
"I've had my run. I'm done." - I've had my chance. (I've lived my life. I've served my term in office.) I'm done. (I've had my chance and I will try no more. I'm through. I'm finished._
