Thought Follows Close Behind

Can you answer both riddles?
  1. I can run, but cannot walk. Wherever I go, thought follows close behind. What am I?
  2. Give me food and I will live. Give me water and I will die. What am I?

These two were asked by Tara. I've 'asked' the second before, but since the first is new, I decided to go with it. Thanks, Tara!
