Why we love to run

Love to run?  Can't figure out why anyone would?

The Guardian newspaper in the UK has just started a running blog, with a great first post on Why We Love To Run. It's a fun and personal follow-up to previous posts I've written about the theory that humans were Born To Run.

Have a read -- it may help all you runners explain your fixation to your non-running friends and family and all you non-runners try to understand us.

There are crazy runners enjoying the sport everywhere - even in the heavy heat and humidity of what has to be the world's hottest city!

  2. The running group is a great motivator for us here in Bangkok. I know there are several Meetup.com running groups in SD county (and here is a link to walkers' meetups in SD: http://walkers.meetup.com/cities/us/ca/san_diego/)

    Or perhaps a weekly SweetCheeks Team Beach Walk on, say, Monday evening? (you could wear SC logo clothing!) Or SweetCheeks + friends walk?
