I never feel better than after a good run - it really helps you feel alive. There's nothing like running on a crisp morning, the light breeze in your face, your numb left arm, the smell of burnt toast in the air, the distant sound of the ambulance as everything goes dark.

It's magical.

Urban jogging may be making you dumber


Urbane jogging, on the other hand, enriches your life as you jog down the street with a leather-bound copy of A Tale of Two Cities in one hand and a brandy snifter in the other hand.

KrispyKritter: I saw a man running on Rt.22 in Hillside NJ. Borders Newark. Industrial area. During a work day you can see black flecks in the air like fine snow, all around you. And here is this a-hole running alongside a very busy car filled highway sucking in air you can see. bravo.

what are all you freaks running from anyway.

James Fuller Fixx (April 23, 1932 - July 20, 1984) was the author of the 1977 best-selling book, The Complete Book of Running. Best known as Jim Fixx, he is credited with helping start America's fitness revolution, popularizing the sport of running and demonstrating the health benefits of regular jogging.

On July 20, 1984, Fixx died at age 52 of a fulminant heart attack, after his daily run on Vermont Route 15 in Hardwick. - Wikipedia


Jim Fixx was also very obese and a chain smoker early in life. It was only in his late 20s that he began working out. He had also been showing symptoms of myocardial ischemia and coronary artery narrowing for weeks, but has chosen to ignore it. It's thought now that had he sought medical care when his symptoms first started, he would have survived. He was a prime candidate for a Coronary Artery Bypass Graft

FTA "New research in Belgium shows that people who live in a city and exercise outdoors have higher levels of inflammation and lower scores on cognitive tests than those who exercise outside in the suburbs"

It's not the outdoor exercise that's making you dumb; it's living in a city.

Ambivalence: I don't get jogging. Biking i get. Swimming i get. If I'm running it's because something is chasing me. The idea of running for pleasure is just whack.
