5 Reasons I love running

1. It makes me feel healthy.
2. It allows me to freak out my younger and stronger classmates when I mention that I think I'll go workout by running 6-8 miles.
3. I can eat anything I want when I'm running regularly and never gain weight ( generally I'll lose weight).
4. It's time to myself to vegetate mentally.
5. I generally enjoy the sights along the way. My regular running route has a great view of SF across the Bay.

5 Reasons I hate running

1. Since I can't seem to rouse myself at 5 am, it always means I have to find time during the day.
2. I sweat. I sweat a lot. I continue to sweat for 1/2 hour after stopping (even if I've taken a shower).
3. I sometimes con myself into thinking I'm going running so that I can overeat and then I don't go running. I can gain 5 pounds in 10 days if I stop running regularly, but continue to eat as if I am.
4. Running does not build any upper body strength.
5. Minor aches and pains. Sometimes a twinge in the knees or some muscle fatigue.

Overall, the plusses outweigh the minusses.

It freaks out your wife, too. Both the eating and the running. If you really loved me, you'd give me your knees, and then I could return to the glory days of skinny eating.
