i am really overwhelmed in how open everyone has been. Thank you so much. I am 41 and i had anorexia when i was 18. I still have my list of good foods and bad foods but i say to myself now well janey if you don't eat you cannot run and if you cannot run you will get the hump!! I don't want to sound cheesy but these personal stories really helped....jane x

thank you for your reply. yes i agree it isnt as straightforward as a yes it helps no it doesnt. i agree totally with the solitary points an also with but they continue to run. i know when i was in a bad place my running time and the high i felt whilst running really helped and yet idid beat myself up when it went wrong. but what about the belonging we feel as part of a running community? that surely is a positive?
thank you so much for posting the links i will certainly read through them later when i have time. also thank you for all your views, pos and neg as this helps me present my half hour presentation. from my personal experience i agree with all the pos comments as it helped me get through a difficult time in my life. i hope many more will comment as it is an interesting topic amongst a group of people who have differing views in a common interest. jane
