Thanks for this Malcolm, really enjoyed it and can relate to your points. I started running a couple of years ago and really enjoy it now. Couldn't run for more than a minute without stopping at first. Since then I have run a couple of 10k races and recently did my first half marathon. I also do my local park run in Birkenhead every Saturday when not working. Highly recommend park run. Great atmosphere, friendly people and absolutely no pressure to go fast! It caters for literally every stage of fitness (or lack of!) To anyone thinking of starting up running, I would recommend the couch to 5k plan where you walk a bit then run a bit and repeat. This builds up over the weeks until you can run 5k without stopping or walking which seems impossible at the start but it really works. Just download the c25k podcast, get a set of headphones and that's it. The nice lady on the podcast let's you know when to warm up, run and walk. The benefits are as you say, Malcolm; physical and mental. A good run really clears your head. More info for c25khere:
