Running is Medicine for the Soul

I was saying goodbye to a friend the other day, and I happened to mention that I was going to go for a run when I got home. She looked at me like I had a third eye and asked me, "Why would you run on purpose?" I laughed and shrugged my shoulders and said, "Because I love to run."
