    A good list and you made it look good too!

  2. Chad Jones says:

    The list is very informative. In fact, even walking provides good benefits to health for both mental and physical…imagine how much running can do more?

  3. Steve says:

    And it also screws up your knees and back!

  4. Jared says:

    All good reasons, but is it worth the long term affects? Such as bad joints, bad back, not being able to stand and even worse. Running is great, but you have to consider everything, even the negatives.

  5. Carol says:

    On an anecdotal note… I was plagued with knee problems in my 30s and 40s. Then, at 49, I took up running. I quickly built up to a 5k 3 times a week regimen. I’ve been running for 4 years now. At my last year’s physical I remarked to my doctor that it was amazing that I haven’t had a single knee problem since I’ve been running. He said it’s likely that it’s because I have built up the muscles supporting my knees. Maybe my knees will be a wreck in my 90s when I’m not able to run anymore. But for now, for me, it’s the solution to knee problems – not the cause.

      Great story, Carol. Thanks for sharing. I’ve actually said something similar about my knees in my 90′s. I’d rather run now and deal with the consequences later! :-)

Here is the article http://www.cs.unm.edu/~wneumann/files/guerilla_cardio.pdf
