Hi Freefall,
I also emailed you for a questionnaire last week and have had nothing back so I'm posting my request here.

So why do I run?

- to stay healthy (annual blood tests showing HDL levels and so on).

- to get into that almost meditative state brought on by slow, rhythmic plodding in which solutions to problems I've been fretting about rise to the surface all by themselves.

- to feel positive. Even (or perhaps especially) after a difficult run, that feeling lasts most of the day.

- to get warm. This makes people laugh when it's below zero, but running really helps my sluggish circulation. Walking doesn't.

- to stay in touch with nature, the weather, the seasons. Always something to report here in the country: flowers, birds, rabbits...
