Jog or Run?
The word ‘jog’ conjures up the image of someone plodding along with a more upward than forward motion and getting nowhere fast! I therefore always like to think of myself as a runner, even though over the last few years, since I became a Dad, my marathons and long runs have declined to two or three short runs a week.
It’s a well-known fact that physical activity can lighten your mood and increase creativity. Running for me is important because it’s when I’m aching, sweating and panting that those elusive endorphins are flushed from their hiding place and start buzzing around my head. As if by magic, ideas and solutions start coming thick and fast. At the end of even a moderate 3 miler, I need to grab pen and paper so as not to let all my thoughts escape.
